Multiple aliquots for best practice storage
Storage of large sample volumes may be convenient but the problem comes when sample aliquots are requested. Many sample types are susceptible to multiple freeze thaw cycles, so the approach of preparing multiple aliquots per sample can be a good approach, with each aliquot discarded after use. arktic’s® storage capacity is higher with smaller tubes aiding this practice.
Mixing automated storage with manual freezers
For large collections automation of storage can be expensive. Using the arktic to help organise samples for long term manual storage whilst maintaining a stock of working samples in the system can be a cost effective and extremely efficient approach. Customers have successfully adopted this strategy to manage millions of samples with conservative budgets.
