BioStore -80°C Automated Sample Storage System is a biological storage system that improves sample quality with highly controlled cold-chain and inventory management. The BioStore system's HD storage trays and multi-pitch shelving maximize storage density to offer storage efficiency and incredible storage density. BioStore’s decoupled robotics allow for targeted access and servicing while the rest of the system remains operational maximizing system uptime.

Trained users can handle first level service issues and access to the system in case of emergency. The proven BioStore system provides the highest throughput, for optimum sample availability. Azenta Life Sciences is the preferred storage partner to the world’s top biotechnology companies and the leader in automated biosample storage.

Key Features


  • System sizing: a wide range of capacity options are available from 70,000 to over 10 million tubes
  • Labware flexibility and adaptability: handles the widest range of labware available in a single store, including cryovials, SBS formatted tubes, SBS plates and more
  • Functional modules: allow for customization to meet your needs today and can be modified to meet your future needs
  • High-density storage: reformatting labware to proprietary HD storage racks can more than double storage capacity compared to SBS formatted storage
  • Multi-pitch shelving: dynamic storage shelving maximizes storage density; a sample imaging module captures barcodes, labware type and heights to assure an optimal storage location
  • Easy to use: no special expertise required to operate the system
  • Various models available including options for space efficiency


The BioStore system maintains sample integrity by keeping innocent (unpicked) samples at storage temperature throughout the picking process. Other quality assurance features include:

  • Sample security: redundant refrigeration circuits and backup LN2 capability are standard, and help maintain consistent sample temperature in case of catastrophic power outage
  • -80°C picking modules: can pick cohorts of tubes and maintain non-targeted, ‘innocent’ samples at -80°C until requested by user
  • Temperature homogeneity: by placing the evaporators above all samples, the temperature remains constant throughout the storage environment
  • Minimized thermal disruption: a passive tile wall insulates the storage compartment and allows for rapid sample access; less than 1% of the wall surface area is opened when samples are retrieved, ensuring innocent samples are not exposed to unnecessary temperature cycling
