Freezer management software for busy labs.

Freezer management shouldn’t be difficult or time-consuming. That’s why we’ve included an intuitive freezer management software tool in Sample Manager that makes it easier than ever. Sample Manager allows you to create an exact virtual match of the physical storage options used in your lab, and track the location and movement of your sample inventory. By using a “sample-centric” approach to freezer management, Sample Manager tracks your samples independent of their freezer storage. This flexibility creates a streamlined workflow and closely aligns with the freezer management and sample inventory operations in most labs.

With freezer management you can:

  • Create an exact virtual match of freezer storage in your lab
  • Quickly find specific samples in your freezer
  • See details of stored samples including freeze/thaw counts, volume and more
  • Visually manage available freezer capacity and sample location

Frequently Asked Questions about Freezer Management

Answers to the questions we hear about freezer management, sample-centric freezer systems, and centralizing sample data with freezer data.

Freezer management is the practice of organizing and taking care of a lab freezer. This involves keeping things like biological samples or chemicals at the right temperatures, labeling and tracking what's inside the freezer, and making any needed repairs to the freezer or storage equipment. Proper freezer management is essential for preserving research materials and maintaining the quality of scientific experiments.

Sample-centric freezer management systems are more of a light version of a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). For example, LIMS have a broader scope and support more things, like lab inventory, billing, and automatic experiment integration.
