GenStore Archive

The GenStore Archive is a highly efficient and cost effective method for storing hundreds of thousands of biosamples. Designed for storing GenTegra-DNA and GenTegra-RNA protected samples, the GenStore Archive can hold up to 600 96-tube racks.* The exact number of other racks will be dependent on the brand of 96-tube rack and the tube volume used. Any manufacturer’s 96-tube rack may be used and virtually any size tube. The GenStore Archive will also store small screw cap tubes conveniently in a 100 tube paper box. The optional box rack holds twenty boxes for a total rack capacity of 2000 tubes. Box racks and plate racks can be conveniently mixed as needed. GenStore archive is well suited for organizations that collect a relatively large number of samples for their own personal research efforts.
