NEW – Preparation For Winter Inspection
MTS Cryo Stores disaster recovery service
As the winter months approach us it is more likely that power cuts and flooding are likely to occur. We over look this problem until the day that the disaster happens and then panic about maintaining sample integrity. Our disaster recovery service is proving to be a popular option for customers who want a contingency plan to safe guard there valuable samples. It is quick and easy to set up and provides you with piece of mind that in the event of a disaster your samples will be kept safe.

How it works:
  • We set up the disaster recovery contract for you.
  • When you contact us with a disaster you will be put straight through to one of our on call engineers who will respond to your call straight away.
  • We will come to your facility equipped with our on board diesel generator, dry ice, packaging and additional freezers if required for your disaster and transport your samples or freezers containing your samples to our facility, where they will be kept safely until you are ready to have them transported back to you.

MTS Cryo Stores off site sample storage service
As an extra measure of safe guarding your samples against a disaster, why not aliquot copies of your samples and store them off site at our facility. This ensures that if there is a disaster at your facility you have copies of your valuable samples off site, which can be readily transported to you when required.

Cool repair's general freezer maintenance advice
We can decrease the likely hood of freezers failing over Christmas by carrying out the basic maintenance steps below.
  • Servicing your freezers every 6 months will ensure your freezers operate correctly and will highlight any future problems that may need to be addressed.
  • Maintaining the correct room temperature where your freezers are situated is important. As the cold descends on us it is very tempting to turn the heating up in the rooms, but this has an effect on your equipment. Freezers have to work twice as hard to maintain their set points and compressors can fail as they have to work harder to maintain temperature.
  • Keeping an eye on ice build-up around the doors is good freezer practice, as too much ice can cause the freezer to have to work harder. It is good practice to scrape ice off the doors every month.
  • Cleaning the filters often gets overlooked by customers. Cleaning the filters every month by either brushing or hovering ensures the freezers run at their maximum efficiency.

Team Update
It's been another busy month for the team! Over the last month we are pleased to announce that Amanda and Arien have both completed their ADR courses. This is great news and gives our clients piece of mind that their samples and freezers are being managed and transported in the correct way!

Arien and JB have also been busy winning more golf trophies. Last month all that practice on the golf course paid off when they won the game at the DNCC Golf Day. The golf day took place at Trent Lock Golf Centre where avid golfers from local businesses battled it out to win the trophy! Watch out for the golfing duo at a course near you…..!!
