The Multi-Vial Reader scans the ID and temperature of 100 (10×10) vials in a Bluechiip CryoBox. The Multi-Vial Reader can sense the ID of the CryoBox, and the vials in it, via the CryoBoxTag. The CryoBox has an open bottom, allowing the reading of individual barcoded vials.
Multi-Vial Readers need to be ordered with a corresponding Matchbox reader to operate and display the CryoBox maps, which display vial positions and other information.
The Multi-Vial Reader supports a ColdTop (sold separately), an insulated dry-ice box which surrounds the CryoBox . This helps maintain a cold environment, which preserves sample quality.
