bluechiip® patented polycarbonate cassettes are designed to store blood bags containing platelet and plasma concentrates. The polycarbonate cassettes are 76% cooler than aluminium cassettes when removed from liquid nitrogen, have a clear window, can be colour coded and have a unique anti-slip mechanism that prevents them sliding out of racks when being handled.
The bluechiip® cassette safeguards your plasma and platelet concentrates against unwanted thermal excursions. The polycarbonate material overcomes fundamental problems with aluminium cassettes that demonstrate poor thermal properties; are generally sharp, slippery and clunky to handle. The bluechiip® cassette has a simple open and close function and a clear window for immediate identification of a sample or barcode. Multiple colours provide a 3rd identifier to group specific samples or project. Each bluechiip® cassette has a locking mechanism to prevent it from sliding out of a bluechiip® rack during handling. The cassettes and racks are stand-alone products that can also be fitted with a bluechiip CryoTag™ that enables temperature and identification tracking to the sample level.
