|Currently Bluechiip provides an embedded tag into a Corning vial. The crogenic delta tag™ is embedded into a 2ml vial for use in biobanks in research use only (RUO) based applications.
This vial is gamma sterilised and has been repeatedly tested at LN2 temperatures. Bluechiip is developing its own vial and expects this will be commercially available in 2013.
|Enabled by the bluechiip® Tag, Cryotag™ is a universal tagging device to provide information on item identification and temperature. It is encapsulated by cryogenic and Gamma sterilisation-proof polycarbonate. The Cryotag™ can be incorporated into a range of cryogenic racks, frames, canisters and trays.|
|The Bluechiip fob is used to access the Matchbox reader. Each user of the system has their own unique fob to identify themselves to the system and to ensure the chain of custody is being followed.|
|The Bluechiip® Cryogenic Delta Tag is a patented and highly miniaturised device that enables the Bluechiip® chain-of-custody system.The tag features instantaneous measurement of the tag’s temperature and ID. The tag is immune to extreme environments such as gamma radiation and storage and operation in cryogenic environments making it suitable for biobank applications.
It is designed for use in conjunction with the Bluechiip® Matchbox™ Reader and the Bluechiip® Stream™ sample and inventory management software.
