Top Tips On Getting Ahead For The Winter
 
As winter is fast approaching we are helping a lot of clients to be prepared for the cold months ahead.

Here are our top 5 tips for getting ready for winter:
  • Ensure that you have a service contract in place for freezers that you have on site. This way should the worst happen (i.e. heavy snow, high winds) you have piece of mind that one of our engineers are on call 24/7, 365 days per year to help with any problems.
  • Take the time to develop a sound Disaster Recovery Plan. By ensuring that you have one of these in place will mean that if a freezer or power supply fails you have a process in place to maintain the low temperatures for important samples and freezers.
  • Consider offsite sample storage to manage your samples. MTS Cyro Stores collects, stores and retrieves samples upon request. You can benefit from the increased space, reduced energy costs and the assurance that your samples are being managed correctly.
  • Freezer inspections and refurbishment. Are you confident in how well your freezers are performing? If not why not ask one of the Cool Repair team to carry out a Healthcare Check on your freezer inventory? Our highly skilled engineers have developed over 40 methods of assessment to ensure that your freezer is running at its' optimum.
  • Consider renting back up equipment – this could include freezers or diesel back up generators.

Is The UK At Risk Of Power Cuts?
 
You may have recently seen in the news the discussions on if the UK is at risk of power cuts from now until 2015 due to the lack of new power generation plants being built. Whilst city analysts are reporting a decrease in the amount of gas that the UK is producing, others are highlighting the importance of renewable energy sources for the UK such as wind and solar.

This is a story that we are keen to watch as it could mean serious issues for our clients, their freezers and samples.

We'll keep you posted on any key developments with this story, in the meantime if you would like to discuss our Disaster Recovery Plans please click here.
