Cryogenic Cold Chain Management: Protecting Bio-Sample Temperatures Using Automation and Best Practices

Brooks Logo


Preserving the viability of your biological samples is imperative to obtaining good quality data. Samples are often stored such that their temperatures stay below -135°C, the glass transition temperature (Tg). Here, enzymatic activity ceases or is reduced, helping to preserve sample quality. However, if temperatures are not managed properly during sample storage or transportation, the integrity of your data can be lost.

Download this whitepaper to explore how all samples, including innocents, can always stay well below Tg, using an automated workflow including:

  • Insulated sleeves to slow warming
  • Anytime manual access
  • Sample temperature prediction software algorithms
