Biobanking: INLANDYS automation & cryogenics - IRELEC

As the number of stored samples continuously grows, and thus the number of manual retrieval and storage operations, automation of cryogenic biobanks is a key opportunity to improve both samples quality and users’ safety.

Automation that matches with existing equipment and practices

IRELEC has designed, INLANDYS®, a full automated system with a unique architecture, that fits with biobank existing equipment and database software:

  • The system is built with a standard storage architecture: samples are stored in boxes, stowed inside racks, in cryogenic tanks

  • It works with the existing tanks, just adding an automation kit

  • It is linked to the biorepository database software

Best user safety and working conditions

All operations are programmed by the user on its database software.

INLANDYS® carries out all painful operations: tank opening, rack retrieval from tank, box retrieval from rack, samples transfer.

A shuttle box (empty or with ready-to-be-stored samples) is put by the user on a secure transfer drawer which provides the access to the secure automated system: closed area with safety PLC.

Efficient and Easy-to-drive

INLANDYS® greatly improves user’s experience: a single scheduling is done for the retrieval or the storage of one to hundreds of samples, and the user is not requested to wait during operation. He is informed when the programmed operation has been completed.

A seamless access to on-going operation status is provided.

Samples cold chain management and traceability

As samples exposition’s times at room temperature are critical, transfer operations are done in nitrogen-cooled areas. Each sample is individually monitored, during all its storage life, from its initial deposit to its final delivery, during all its movements outside the cryogenic tank due to the retrieval or the storage of neighbour samples.
