Sample Access Manager (SAM) SAM is an automated sample management system available in both -20°C and -80°C platforms that combines reliability, robustness, flexibility and ease of use in a small-sized biobank. State-of-the-Art Sample Storage SAM is a compact, robust, localized storage system for secure sample management of up to 803 microplates or 60,000 microtubes. Our patented automation not only eliminates freeze-thaw cycles, but also limits any moisture introduction into the system, therefore maintaining sample integrity. The system continuously monitors the -20°C / -80°C sample environment, even during picking, ensuring the samples never reach critical sample temperature. Useful for Biobanking and Drug Discovery Applications The SAM is environmentally controlled, with a temperature range of +20°C to -40°C on the -20°C platform or -50°C to -80°C on the -80°C platform, which allows for the storage of compounds and biological samples, such as DNA/RNA, oligonucleotides, cells, plasma, serum, tissues, proteins and bacterial clones.
