NEED GOOD RESULTS? START WITH A GOOD PREPARATION THE PROBLEM Human biospecimens have been collected and stored for over 100 years, and today, more than of 300 million biospecimens are warehoused in freezers or stored in other formats such as paraffin-embedded tissue blocks1. However, over the past decade or so it has become clear that the great majority of biospecimens stored in the world’s biorepositories may not be suited for the state-of-the-art genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and other bioanalytical technologies used today to search for cancer-related biomarkers. The...

DEFROST FEATURE To eliminate the potential formation of ice on the freezing platform, a manual defrost cycle is provided. It consists of a heater embedded in the freezing platform and a vacuum pump to extract water vapors from the chamber. Vapors are condensed and collected in a cold-trap placed in the front of the unit for easy handling. A HEPA filter is provided on the exhaust side of the pump. The integrated software can set the defrost cycle to take place during off-hours and can set the cooling cycle to restart at a preset time to ensure the availability for the first case of the day....
