Repositories often handle millions of specimens including cell banks, tissue, sera, plasma, slides and nucleic acids. Freezer alarms, on- and off-site notification, documentation and validation are critical components of a successful repository. The importance of long-term storage to our research community is evident with recent repository contracts being awarded in excess of $25 million. As with most businesses, repositories are seeking a competitive edge when bidding on large contracts. Having Rees Scientific as a partner can help your organization complete its mission statement and provide quality storage for your clients’ valuable and often irreplaceable specimens.
