An automated cold storage apparatus, and related method thereof, provides a sample process management system that is a revolutionary approach to the storage and retrieval regarding critical samples. The system-a significant technological breakthrough in laboratory automation-is the first ultra low temperature robotic system capable of being validated. Samples in containers are stored and retrieved robotically through an airlock climate-control chamber that is automatically dehumidified by a dry gas purge, such as a carbon dioxide or nitrogen purge or the...
1. An automated storage and retrieval apparatus for storing containers at ultra low temperatures, said apparatus comprising:a freezer compartment, said freezer compartment having a side wall; a storage carousel disposed inside said freezer compartment for holding the containers; a climate-controlled chamber disposed on said side wall; a climate system for controlling the climate of said chamber; an interchange mechanism configured to: interchange a container between said interchange mechanism and said climate-controlled chamber while in a chamber exchang...
