Projects on ice

helgeAt the start of next year, a centralized storage of biomaterial at -80C and colder is planned in Marie Joys House (MJH). Here remote freezers needs be placed, and the majority of the biomaterial should be stored here.
The remaining biomaterial may be stored in local freezers, especially material which is in frequent use. Since the need for freezer capacity is increasing and soon increasing beyond the present capacity, we will now be starting the process of establishing local freezers and remote freezers. We will work through the established Floor responsible people (Etasjekontakter) in the Lab building and in the Obstetrics Department and Pediatrics Department to assemble an overview of freezers (-80C and colder including liquid nitrogen storage) including number and owners and users of each freezer.

We encourage the owners of freezers/biobanks already now to begin sorting their material based on storage in either local freezers or in remote freezers. There are several ways to solve this, for example by redefining the ownership to the freezers in each floor so that the owners jointly manage both local freezers and remote freezers, but we welcome alternative suggestions. The goal is that some of freezers in in Lab building and in the Obstetrics Department and Pediatrics Department must be moved to MJH to operate as remote freezers there.
