An Extension of Azenta's Innovative and Market Leading Automated Cryogenic Technology
BURLINGTON, Mass., Feb. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Azenta, Inc. (Nasdaq: AZTA) today announced the launch of the Cryo Store Pico™ ("Pico"), a novel automated cryogenic storage system designed for high-value biological samples used in the many stages of life sciences, from discovery to clinical use. Azenta is the provider of revolutionary automated cryogenic solutions including the BioStore™ III Cryo and the CryoPod™ Carrier. Pico is an extension of their innovative lineup, providing market leading automated cryogenic technology configured for clinical and laboratory applications.
In particular, the Pico offers a robust feature set for cell and gene therapy ("CGT") developers and manufacturers, including end stage deployment at the hospital or clinic. The Pico provides controlled access and traceability that supports regulatory compliance with a compact footprint as well as ease of use for lab personnel.
"Pico takes our proven automation capabilities and scales it down for the lab or the clinic, bringing the sample integrity and process rigor of automation closer to the point of use," said Erica Waller, Product Manager for the Pico.
"The Pico ensures precise cold-chain handling, and secure, login-based access means we always know which samples have been pulled by whom, and how long they were in use," said Dr. Erik J. Woods, Co-Founder, EVP & Chief Science Officer, Ossium Health. "This is especially important if cells are stored at a clinical site that might not have existing sample management systems in place. Putting automation into the clinical space is a game-changer for efficiency and maintaining sample integrity. If we avoid just one precious high-value sample becoming compromised, our investment in the Pico more than pays for itself."
The Pico is now available for order and will be demonstrated live at Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) 2023 International Conference in San Diego, CA. For more information, visit the Pico webpage and register here for a demo.
