The BiOLiX STT Line
The STT Line is the most compact of LiCONiC’s fully automated sample storage systems. Each STT unit can fit in virtually any lab. The -20°C configurations are factory assembled, so delivery times are short and installation is simple. They are perfect for a wide variety of sample types and applications including integrated workcells. The STT Line is suitable for sample collections in the range from 50 000 to 150 000 of samples and can be configured for various temperatures including -80°C.
The BiOLiX STC LineThe STC Line units are ideally suited for the wide range of storage applications ranging from approximately 100 000 to millions of samples and for temperatures ranging from -80°C to RT. STC’s ultra-high density storage is configurable to precisely fit any room dimensions. This solution is a popular choice for biobanking applications storing blood, DNA, RNA, proteins, tissues and more. The STC Line provides all the advantages of LiCONiC’s Bio-Libraries: industry’s best temperature stability, energy consumption, structural integrity and sample density.
The BiOLiX SAB LineThe SAB Line is the best solution for large sample collections where a primary objective of the storage is long term sample safety and efficiency of storage processes that have high tube and rack variability. The storage temperature in SAB units ranges from +25°C and can reach as low as -130°C. It is especially suited for non-automation friendly labware such as cryo boxes. The SAB line offers first of its kind hybrid system with multiple temperature storage spaces within one unit. The SAB provides a straightforward pathway for converting manual freezer processes to an automated environment. The SAB Line offers the same advantages as other LiCONiC Bio-Libraries including versions with automated single sample access capability.
The BiOLiX FAB LineThe FAB line is a fully automated version of the SAB line, providing individual sample retrieval while utilizing all the advantages of the SAB architecture.
The FAB Line combines sample safety, sample density and power efficiency design principles of the BiOLiX Series besides accommodates a very specific operational needs of collections with diverse labware types and storage temperature requirements.
The BiOLiX STV LineThe STV Line is a fully automated cryogenic vapor phase LN2 (≤-185°C) storage system for samples requiring cryopreservation The STV series provides data precision, personal safety and sample integrity -all the challenges in a manual access cryogenic process. High density storage in a wide variety of configurations is scalable from 50 000 to 20 000 000+ samples. The STV Line provides the benefits of automation plus the features of LiCONiC’s unique cryogenic storage tanks: high density and energy efficiency.
