Schedule a meeting

Let us know if you'd like to schedule a time to chat about your needs, or see a product demo.


Come See the Latest Innovations from Azenta 

We’ll be introducing several new products at SLAS this year, including a revolutionary new automated sample storage system that reduces energy consumption up to 76% while storing three times more samples in the same amount of space (compared to manual freezers), a new hinged PCR tube called Cap2, and the Ziath RITrack cryogenic tube scanning system. Stop by booth 909 to see them and find out more. Want to schedule a meeting? Use the form above to reserve your time.



In Automated Sample Storage!

Get ready to experience a game-changing innovation in biological sample storage. We will soon introduce a next generation -80°C system that brings storage density to new heights. The new system promises to save space and energy while making great strides in sustainability: delivering eco-friendly technology with zero Global Warming Potential (GWP) and zero Ozone Depletion Potential (OZP).

Cryogenic Game-Changer:  Tracking Technology Locates Correct Tubes Within Ice-Covered Racks

Ziath RITrack Mirage: 2D-code Reader

Revolutionizing the handling of frozen samples stored in 2D-coded tubes, RITrack utilizes innovative radio-frequency tagging to eliminate the challenges posed by ice formation on tube and rack bases. With the ability to store identities for up to 96 tubes in a rack, it works seamlessly with cryotubes straight from the freezer, including vapor-phase LN2 storage, safeguarding thermally sensitive samples without requiring warming or thawing. Compatible with standard SBS racks, RITrack lowers operational costs, offering a cost-effective and durable sample tracking solution that enhances lab productivity.

Novel Design for Maximum Sample Retrieval 

Maximum Recovery 1.6ml Tri-coded Tube

Featuring a novel design, the 1.6ml Maximum Recovery Tube is ideally suited for automated workflows that use liquid handling, allowing more sample to be retrieved thanks to the uniquely shaped bottom. The innovative, tapered design combines both a ‘v’ and ‘u’ shaped bottom to enable a higher amount of sample retrieval, thereby reducing reagent wastage and increasing cost savings.
