Sample Preservation Freezer Facility

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.
