What is Refrigerated Bio Storage?
Refrigerated biostorage, also known as cold storage or refrigerated storage, refers to storing biological materials, specimens, and samples at specific low temperatures within refrigeration units or storage systems designed to preserve their integrity and viability.
- Temperature Range: Maintains temperatures between 2°C and 8°C (36°F to 46°F).
- Duration: Ideal for short-term storage of biological materials where preservation for a few weeks or months is required.
- Viability: Preserves materials by slowing down biological processes but does not typically allow for long-term preservation or cryopreservation.
Refrigerated biostorage often houses various biological materials, including enzymes, antibodies, cell lines, and other samples. Biological materials are critical to medical research and other applications, making it crucial to preserve them in controlled conditions to maintain viability.
Proper refrigerated storage is also critical for preserving and storing vaccines. Many vaccines, such as those for HPV, MMR, measles, and mumps, require storage in a controlled refrigerated facility. The temperature range in off-site biostorage facilities helps ensure vaccine efficacy and safety.
Some medical devices, such as insulin pumps, must be kept within a specific temperature range. Medical devices often have components that are sensitive to temperature, meaning they need to be stored in refrigerated conditions to ensure efficacy. Refrigerated biostorage solutions can help maintain the integrity and functionality of sensitive medical equipment for extended periods.
