Cryogenic Cold Chain Management -
Protecting Bio-Sample Temperatures Using Automation and Best Practices

Authors: John Fink, Matthew Albert, Matteo Salvetti

The implementation of an effective cryogenic cold chain ensures that all samples stay safely below their glass transition temperature (Tg H20 -135°C). Often underestimated though is how quickly samples warm when removed from a cryogenic environment. By knowing thermal excursion rates and understanding transient warming events, one can implement automation devices and best practices to ensure that all samples, including innocents, stay well below Tg at all times.

This poster presents a recommended workflow based on experimental thermal excursions using the BioStore™ III Cryo storage system and the CryoPod™ carrier.
