BioStorage Technologies, Inc. and Biomatrica Announce Strategic Alliance for Sample Storage and Conversion Services



3/23/2010 11:12:13 AM

INDIANAPOLIS, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- BioStorage Technologies, Inc., a worldwide provider of temperature controlled sample storage and management, and Biomatrica(R), a leader in room temperature sample stabilization, today announced a strategic alliance that will enable customers to leverage both companies' core strengths.

"As a leader in cold chain storage and transportation, BioStorage Technologies continually evaluates the latest technologies in sample storage and management to ensure the best customer service," said Lori Ball, senior vice president of BioStorage Technologies. "After reviewing numerous potential partners, we selected Biomatrica, as they clearly set the standard as the leader in this field. We are excited to drive the industry forward through this partnership as we believe that providing options to our clients is paramount."

BioStorage Technologies will also provide the option for conversion services for clients to transition samples from frozen to room temperature storage through the use of Biomatrica's products - DNAstable(R), RNAstable(R) and DNAgard(R). Conversion provides an alternative storage method and supports BioStorage's current initiatives to adopt green technologies. Offering this technology balances the company's reliance on freezers and decreases cold chain shipping costs.
