BioStore™ III Cryo -190°C System

The BioStore III Cryo provides the best in class automated storage solution for cellular products and other materials requiring storage temperatures below glass transition (Tg)

  • Highest sample protection
  • Comprehensive inventory management system
  • Superior user experience
  • LIMS connectivity
  • The BioStore™ III Cryo -190°C System provides researchers and biobank managers with a best-in-class storage solution for cellular products and biosamples
  • The system combines Chart MVE’s proven, high-efficiency LN2 stainless steel freezer with the Brooks automation technology and software to ensure the highest sample integrity
  • The BioStore III Cryogenic storage system offers the greatest sample protection and comprehensive inventory management and control with a superior user experience at an affordable price
  • Targeted and non-targeted samples are protected from warming above Tg (glass transition) throughout sample retrieval
  • Quality is assured by viewing user access, sample inventory, history, and audit-trail reports
  • Emergency situation protection provides greater than 20 days of temperature stability in the case of energy or LN2 loss
Key Features
  • Available in two sizes
  • Compatible with a range of labware, e.g. cryoboxes, vials, microplates
  • Full vial or cassette level inventory tracking
  • Complete -190°C vapor storage environment*
  • SW is capable of providing accurate real-time audit reports
  • LIMS connectivity and system partitioning for shared use
  • Insulating tower temperature protection for non-targeted tubes
  • Ergonomic design for simple user experience and minimized injury risk
  • 17-23 day hold time in case of catastrophic interruption of electrical or LN2 supply (depending on system size)
  • Proven technology: based on Brooks automation expertise and chart MVE freezer


*Temperature variation is +/- 6°C due to thermocouple variation and thermal loading

Sample integrity, security and tracking
  • Consistent -190°C temperatures achieved for from top to bottom using LN2 vapor
  • A sample integrity calculator protects samples from excessive warming by predicting their temperatures based on experimental evidence
  • Integrity is further enhanced by protecting innocent samples during storage and retrieval transient exposures
  • Racks are quickly pulled into an insulated sleeve, significantly slowing transient warming
  • 20-day safety hold time below -135°C (Tg) with full manual access if power or LN2 are disrupted
  • Comprehensive inventory management with vial-level ID, audit trail, reports, and LIMS connectivity
  • BioStore III controller software and touchscreen enable efficient order management and execution
  • Its easy-to-use graphical interface permits tube-level inventory management plus sample storage, retrieval, and auditing
  • The software monitors storage environment data and has comprehensive error handling
  • LIMS connectivity is available for real-time sample management
  • Full 21-CFR-11 reporting capability is available
  • Administrator-defined libraries and access control can optimize the system as a shared resource
