SmartFreezer® 2.0, a high-volume, automatic storage freezer, enhances its version 1.0 functionality to provide a faster, more reliable system with new optional features.

Developed in a partnership with Angelantoni Industrie, SmartFreezer® is the only fully automated freezer that individually stores and retrieves sample vials at temperatures of -180°C using a liquid nitrogen tank (vapor phase).

Now updated with FreezerPro® v6.2 software and finely tuned onboard robotics, the SmartFreezer® has improved barcode reading for more efficient retrieval. The update also features improved capacity to roughly 17,000 1.4 milliliter vials using dot codes or more than 10,000 2.0 milliliter vials utilizing barcodes (compatible with most common types/brands of vials).

Independently validated and certified to be fully compliant with the FDAs current GLP/GMP requirements, SmartFreezer® is the ultimate frozen sample storage solution for biobanks and biorepositories.
