Using a highly durable RFID tag designed for harsh environments with acceptable frequencies, Cryogatt Systems Ltd. and HID Global have developed an RFID tagging system to quickly and accurately identify and deliver a detailed audit of stem cell vials, fertility straw samples and other material cryogenically stored in laboratories, bio-banks and fertility clinics.
This is achieved using HID Global’s RFID HF tags and specially designed Cryogatt readers. Tags are attached to samples cryogenically stored and to trays already positioned in deeply frozen storage. Each tag remains passive (inactive) in storage. When in proximity of an RFID reader, the tags are wirelessly identified and encoded. As the vial sample is tagged, each sample is logged and its position recorded. The solution is simple, easily integrates with a facility’s exiting IT system, and delivers accurate and timely records of all stored samples.
