Bluechiip Products

Preserving the viability and quality of biosamples through accurate ID and temperature is key to regulatory protocols and evidence-based biobanking. Bluechiip’s systems can reliably read samples that have been stored in extreme cryogenic environments that allow your facility to more efficiently capture the complete history of who, where, when, how many times and what the temperature is of an individual biosample as it moves through the stages of its lifecycle within your biobank.

 

Bluechiip’s Retrofit Buttons are designed specifically to fit a range of existing vials in the market. The retrofit button contains a DeltaTag (the Bluechiip ID and temperature sensor) and can be supplied with laser etched 2D barcodes (datamatrix, QR codes). Bluechiip Retrofit Buttons are being used by several biorepositories in the USA, China and Australia…

Stream is a web-based sample-management and temperature chain-of-custody application for biosamples stored in cryogenic environments. Stream is designed to track the sample management process, providing the custodian, location and sample temperature of each individual biosample. Stream can be integrated into current LIMS systems or used as a stand-alone sample management system. Stream is a web-based…
