I am excited to see the development of Biomatrica’s product lines addressing complex samples such as blood and tissue for shipping, storage and management at room temperature. These new products will enhance Biomatrica’s ability to maintain leadership in biobanking and sustainability programs around the world. The innovation and efficacy of these products demonstrates the increased breadth and capacity of the SampleMatrix® technology.
I am also very excited that the technology is being utilized at research institutions to reach their sustainability goals of reducing carbon footprint and energy costs through implementation of Biomatrica technologies. We are glad to be a positive green solution in laboratories around the world.Best regards,
