BioCision, LLC and Brooks Automation, Inc. Announce Joint Development Partnership to Unveil New Cryogenic Sample Handling and Transport Product

BioCision, LLC and Brooks Automation announced their collaborative research and development agreement to improve the handling and transport of valuable biospecimens stored in liquid nitrogen is progressing to the commercialization stage. The co-development project between BioCision and Brooks began in mid-2014 with the goal of providing tools that enable more rigorous collection, handling, and transporting of temperature-sensitive specimens and therapeutics. Current methods, including placing samples stored at liquid nitrogen temperature (-196 C) onto dry ice, which is considerably higher in temperature at -78 C, or utilizing makeshift transporters such as pans with loose liquid nitrogen, leave samples vulnerable to drastic temperature shifts and potentially place operators at risk with insufficient safeguards in place for handling loose liquid nitrogen. The result of this collaboration will be revealed at the upcoming 2015 meeting of the International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER).
