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. Patented Technology Maintains Sample Integrity The SAM presents a great advantage over other -20°C / -80°C storage systems by its use of external magnetic couplers used to drive internal robotics. This patented technology eliminates any moisture introduced within the system while maintaining sample quality and increasing system reliability.
