Plug-in equipment, including freezers, constitutes a large percentage of lab energy use. As storage needs for research and back-up samples increase, sample repositories are requiring more energy than ever.
There is an increased urgency to adopt environmentally sustainable practices in the lab. Decreasing a lab's dependency on freezers is a logical starting place to decrease consumption. The challenge is to "green" the research lab without compromising results.
Biomatrica offers a suite of sample stability products that allow you to store your samples at room temperature instead of relying on cold chain storage. Our room-temperature stability products stabilize and protect your samples, giving you research results that you can trust. Additionally, your samples are protected against the adverse impacts of ultra-cold storage conditions.
We currently offer room temperature stability products for the following
Improving the sustainability of your lab doesn't have to be a compromise. Reduce your energy consumption, reduce your carbon footprint, and optimize your lab space without sacrificing the quality of your biological samples as highlighted in the figure at right.
A major university has completed an evaluation of Biomatrica's system to increase sustainability on campus. Adoption of Biomatrica's room temperature system is forecasted to result in a 18,000 ton CO2 reduction in carbon footprint over 10 years.
Biomatrica has developed a range of products for room temperature stabilization and shipping of tissues, cells, biopsy materials, blood or bacterial strains from collection site to the laboratory for analysis. Some of these products are listed below, including some pending release(s):
