The Bluechiip Retrofit Box is designed to hold 81 units of any 2mL vial in the market. The Retrofit Box is ideal for storing and consolidating cold legacy samples in manual storage to make sure they are easy to locate in the future. Non Bluechiip enabled vials have to be identified visually or using a barcode reader which is also included in the Bluechiip Hand-Held Reader
With the Retrofit Box, Bluechiip traceability can be achieved at the box level taking advantage of the enabled hierarchy of storage above the box such as towers, shelves, drawers, freezers or LN2 tanks. Each box comes Bluechiip enabled containing a Bluechiip Box Tag to enable ID and temperature recording. The Retrofit Box can be read with either a Hand-Held Reader, Multi-Vial Reader or a Box Tracker.
The Retrofit Box is made of plasticised cardboard and withstands freeze thaw cycles without perishing. Vial locations are labeled inside and outside of the box for a convenient storage and pick up.
