Azenta Life Sciences showcased the BioArc Ultra, a groundbreaking automated solution for ultracold sample management, at Analytica 2024. This state-of-the-art system promises to redefine the standards for large-scale sample storage, combining high-density capacity with eco-friendly technology to deliver unprecedented efficiency and sustainability.

A Leap Forward in Ultracold Sample Storage

The BioArc Ultra represents a significant advancement in the field of biorepositories. This automated system is designed to streamline sample management processes, offering notable savings in terms of footprint, labor, and electricity costs. By integrating cutting-edge technology, the Ultra not only enhances operational efficiency but also supports global carbon emissions reduction goals.

Eco-Friendly and Energy Efficient

A standout feature of the BioArc Ultra is its innovative cooling system, which utilizes natural air instead of traditional refrigerants. This eco-friendly approach eliminates the use of ozone-depleting substances, ensuring zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and zero global warming potential (GWP). Additionally, this technology reduces electric power consumption by an impressive 70%, further minimizing the environmental impact and operational costs. The system’s compact design also reduces the storage footprint significantly compared to other manual storage options available on the market.

Commitment to Sustainability

“We are proud to launch the BioArc Ultra, a breakthrough solution that offers countless economic and environmental sustainability benefits to our customers across the sample management landscape,” stated Dean Montano, Senior Product Manager for Azenta’s Automated Storage Solutions. “We have always maintained the belief that automation is the key to best-in-class sample management in terms of sample security, collection visibility, and efficient operations, and the Ultra takes our portfolio of offerings in this category to the next frontier.”

Availability and Exhibition

The BioArc Ultra is now available for order and was prominently featured at Azenta’s exhibit booth during Analytica 2024, from April 9-11 in Munich, Germany. Visitors were encouraged to explore the capabilities of this innovative system and learn more about its benefits directly from Azenta’s experts.
