Sample Preservation Freezer Facility

Archive small quantities of irreplaceable research specimens

 

The Sample Preservation Freezer Facility is now the Archive Biorepository at NCRC

The BRCF Sample Preservation Freezer Facility has been merged into a new Archive Biorepository (ABR) run by the UMMS Central Biorepository (CBR). The facility is intended to provide secure, long-term storage of archival or backup research specimens in case of a disastrous loss of material at the investigator’s primary storage site.

The new facility is located at the North Campus Research Complex and features:

  • -80°C freezers with dual compressors
  • Electricity back-up (generators and battery UPS)
  • Pre-chilled, empty backup freezers
  • Plumbed liquid CO2 in case of compressor failure
  • Continuous monitoring via the TempTrak system and CBR’s 24/7 staff coverage
  • Each box of specimens will be tracked with CBR’s LIMS
  • Courier service to facilitate transfer of specimens to and from NCRC
  • Accreditation by the College of American Pathologists Biorepository Accreditation program.
