EPL provides a secure environment equipped with emergency power and cooling systems, back-up freezers, and an environmental monitoring system; all of which serve to assure sample integrity.  EPL can provide short- and long-term storage suited to the unique nature of your organization’s biospecimens including:

  • Room temperature (20°C to 25°C)
  • Refrigerated (2°C to 8°C)
  • Ultra-Low (-20°C to -80°C)
  • Liquid Nitrogen / Vapor Phase (-150°C to -190°C)

EPL will coordinate the transport of materials between your site and the EPL BioRepository or relocate your existing freezers to the EPL BioRepository, allowing your organization to optimize its use of available space. EPL will conduct semi-annual routine preventative maintenance on your freezers while stored at the EPL BioRepository.
