Biobank Platform Equipment

Liconic STC7k5

The Biobank platform features a Liconic STC7k5 automated ultralow (-80°C) temperature storage system. This appliance uses 2D barcoding to annotate and locate samples for deposition and retrieval. Dual redundant compressors, a third compressor in local storage, connection to dual electrical supply lines plus MUHC emergency power and a backup liquid nitrogen (LN2) dispenser, along with remote monitoring and alarm messaging, assure sample safety. We are currently adding remotely monitored LN2 storage systems to our capabilities.
