IRELEC designs and manufactures a line of automated systems for the storage and retrieval of biological samples kept in nitrogen tanks.
Storage in nitrogen tanks is a tried and tested method for long-term storage of biological samples.
When performed manually, the operations to add and retrieve samples constitute a serious weakness of this storage method due to the risks involved in terms of arduousness, personnel safety and sample quality alteration as a result of the samples heating up.
Thanks to their innovative design, the IRELEC Automated Biobank Management systems protect personnel and preserve the cold chain for all samples during these critical and recurrent operations.
IRELEC's automated systems are the only systems capable of adapting to existing biobank tanks.
Completely separable, they are modular and adapt to biobanks of any size.
These systems are very ergonomic and offer numerous possibilities (carrying out important operations without requiring the presence of personnel, inventories, etc.).
The Grenoble University Hospital biobank was delivered an automated system from IRELEC in March 2017.
