Paper: How to Plan Next-Generation Biological Repositories

Five Critial Elements You Must Consider

Author: Ian Pope, Ph.D., MBA, B.Sc.

More than 300 million biological samples worldwide are stored at temperatures below -80°C and 70% of this material may be compromised because of lack of provenance.

In this paper, you will learn how a sound storage and preservation strategy can make a dramatic difference in the value, quality, and cost of a sample library. The author reviews the five critical elements in planning a next-generation biorepository — storage objective, biological viability, thermal performance, environmental impact, and cost.
