Sysmex works hand in hand with Angelantoni and presents a complete solution for cryopreservation
of samples in biological resource centres ensuring the best protection of sample integrity.




Smartfreezer® is the first fully automated cryogenic storage system at -180°C, for individual storage and retrieval of vials in vapour phase of liquid nitrogen.

Sample protection, inventory management, traceability and operator safety are combined into a single device - Smartfreezer® - which offers the ultimate storage solution for Biobanks and Biorepositories, without sample exposure to transient warming.

Smartfreezer® can store different types of cryo vials (2D-barcoded tubes for 96 format racks or common 2mL cryo-vials), which are manipulated in a cherry picking mode. The robotic arm stores and retrieves samples in a sealed area with controlled humidity, thus preventing ice formation on the vials.

The on board computer controls the robot to guarantee a quick access to the requested sample without manual operation, preventing mix-ups, accidents and wastages.

All the information about user actions, sample locations, storage conditions and history are logged in the FreezerPro® software and could easily be integrated with an external LIMS.
