Tundra StoreTM

Automated Low Temperature Freezer

Cool Keep your cool

TundraStore is insulated with aerogel (also known as frozen smoke), the lowest-density solid known. Aerogel is also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best insulator known to man. A dual set of automated doors minimizes exposure of the internal chamber to the environment. That’s pretty much the best protection you can give your samples, and yourself.

Fast It's about the efficiency of your workflow, not the speed of your plates

No automated freezer accelerates your workflow faster than TundraStore. With up to six separate transfer nests, TundraStore is designed to wait for the robot, not the other way around. Auto-id of barcoded plate stackers prevents crashing of the spatula due to configuration mistakes.

Friendly Don't fight with your store

Easily control and monitor your samples’ environment. TundraStore’s interface is an easy-to use graphical web page. Just point and click–no need to memorize cryptic codes. Navigate from set up to teaching to operation with ease. Network with Ethernet communications, not serial. With web-based temperature and gas-level monitoring, plus email alerts of alarm conditions, you can be in constant contact with TundraStore.
