I have been investigating the availability of off-site storage of
biological specimens for an associate who needs space at ultra cold
temperatures (-70C). He has run out of freezer space and is looking
at options other than buying another freezer. He has had offers
from other labs, a tissue bank, and the regional Red Cross where
they will essentially toss his specimens into their unused space.
His concern is that proper handling and storage may not occur. I
have identified only one commercial facility that provides specimen
storage services, National BioMedical Archives in Gresham, OR.
These people sound very competent but are these the only folks
around who do this? Does anyone know of other facilities?
