We use a wide range of quality laboratory freezers from world leading manufacturers of refrigeration cabinets including: IlShin, New Brunswick, Revco, Sanyo, Queue and Thermo-Forma. For liquid nitrogen tanks our preferred suppliers are Statebourne, MVE & Taylor Warton. MTS Cryo Stores have their own equipment but can also house the client's equipment and place it within our comprehensive maintenance program.

The most effective way of preserving biological materials is by freezing and storing at ultra low or cryogenic temperatures. The most important element of a low temperature storage system is ensuring a constant range of temperatures below a minimum critical threshold (MCT). Superb temperature uniformity throughout the MTS Cryo Stores facility creates 100% storage efficiency, ensuring that your specimens exceed the MCT.


Whether your specimens require refrigeration at 4°C, freezing at -20°C, -40°C, -80°C and -150°C or cryogenic liquid nitrogen storage at -196°C, you will receive the same uncompromising commitment from MTS Cryo Stores.
