ReproTech is a leader in developing storage protocols and documentation practices that have become the standard for our industry. As a long-term reproductive tissue storage specialist, we are dedicated to creating and improving protocols to ensure the safety and accuracy of the tissues entrusted to us.
ReproTech maintains documentation of effective specimen transfer using quality control measures. AATB and NY State inspections have confirmed the effectiveness of ReproTech’s procedures for specimen transfer and storage. View all our credentials.
ReproTech’s storage tanks are inspected frequently and manually replenished with liquid nitrogen by trained and experienced staff. Our storage tanks do not rely on electricity to maintain their cryogenic environment. Each tank is also monitored 24/7 with sophisticated systems capable of detecting temperature variations as slight as .01 degrees Celsius. Every tank room is also monitored 24/7 with remote access cameras.
Access to ReproTech facilities is by appointment only and the entrances remain locked 24/7. Additionally, the cryostorage area in each facility is accessed by magnetically locking doors. Lastly, each site is monitored 24/7 by security systems.
Safe Storage Facilities
Regionally located in the United States, our four offices provide convenient access to storage. To safeguard all of our storage sites, ReproTech has installed F5 Tornado Shelters in our Minnesota and Texas facilities, Safe Rooms to withstand wildfires in our Nevada facility, and Storm Rooms to endure Category 5 hurricanes at our Florida facility. These Safe Storage Rooms house our cryostorage tanks and are built to withstand increasingly strong and frequent storms, giving our clients priceless peace of mind.

Safe Storage Practices
Having the safest storage means preparing for scenarios that are extremely unlikely, just as an extra precaution. ReproTech goes above and beyond in the following ways:
ReproTech provides storage services for patients who have tested positive for sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HTLV 1 & 2, Syphilis or other communicable diseases. We provide separate shipping and storage tanks that are used exclusively for Potentially Infectious Specimens. Learn more about Potentially Infectious Specimen Storage.
We’ve developed industry leading processes for shipping specimens which assure the safety and security of every specimen.
All of our shipping tank enclosures feature our proprietary locking mechanisms and custom Secure Tight seals with serial numbers to prevent unauthorized personnel from opening. We use temperature exposure indicators to monitor the cryo-environment during shipment. Other companies that ship similar specimens use temperature data loggers, here’s why we do not.
Even when not in use, our shipping tanks remain charged with nitrogen to avoid the structural stress that temperature changes can put on these tanks. In addition, our shipping tanks are inspected before and after each shipment, and we validate each tank annually and replace them automatically after 5 years.
These processes assure the safety and security of every specimen, plus we offer affordable shipping insurance that clients can elect to purchase. Click for more details about our shipping processes.
