BioStore™ II -80°C Automated Storage System

BioStore™ II is the only automated sample management and biological storage system that provides flexible, modular solutions with the security and reliability which can precisely fit the biobank customer’s needs

  • Can accommodate 70,000 to over 10 million tubes
  • Fits the widest range of labware in a single store
  • Dynamic storage shelving
  • Highly customizable
Overview
  • The BioStore™ II is a -80°C biological storage system that improves sample quality with highly controlled cold-chain and inventory management
  • The BioStore™ II system's HD storage trays and multi-pitch shelving maximize storage density to offer storage efficiency and incredible storage density
  • BioStore™ II’s decoupled robotics allow for targeted access and servicing while the rest of the system remains operational maximizing system uptime
  • Trained users can handle first level service issues and access to the system in case of emergency
  • The proven BioStore™ II system provides the highest throughput, for optimum sample availability
  • Brooks is the preferred storage partner to the world’s top biotechnology companies and the leader in automated biosample storage
Key Features
  • System sizing: a wide range of capacity options are available from 70,000 to over 10 million tubes
  • Labware flexibility and adaptability: handles the widest range of labware available in a single store, including cryovials, SBS formatted tubes, SBS plates and more
  • Functional modules: allow for customization to meet your needs today and can be modified to meet your future needs
  • High-density storage: reformatting labware to proprietary HD storage racks can more than double storage capacity compared to SBS formatted storage
  • Multi-pitch shelving: dynamic storage shelving maximizes storage density; a sample imaging module captures barcodes, labware type and heights to assure an optimal storage location
  • Easy to use: no special expertise required to operate the system
Quality

BioStore™ II System maintains sample integrity by keeping innocent (unpicked) samples at storage temperature throughout the picking process. Other quality assurance features include:

  • Sample security: redundant refrigeration circuits and backup LN2 capability are standard, and help maintain consistent sample temperature in case of catastrophic power outage
  • -80°C picking modules: can pick cohorts of tubes and maintain non-targeted, ‘innocent’ samples at -80°C until requested by user
  • Temperature homogeneity: by placing the evaporators above all samples, the temperature remains constant throughout the storage environment
  • Minimized thermal disruption: a passive tile wall insulates the storage compartment and allows for rapid sample access; less than 1% of the wall surface area is opened when samples are retrieved, ensuring innocent samples are not exposed to unnecessary temperature cycling
