Multi-Layer Monitoring

In addition to every tank being housed in our Disaster-Safe Rooms, they are also protected with multi-layered safety measures:

  1. Sophisticated system of internal temperature sensors capable of detecting variations as slight as .01 degrees Celsius.
  2. External temperature monitoring sensors that measure the temperature on the outside of storage tanks as an extra layer of surveillance.
  3. Frequent measuring of nitrogen liquid levels with evaporation rate tracking and predictive analysis.
  4. Weekly testing of our alert call-out systems to ensure functionality.
  5. ReproTech’s storage tanks are inspected frequently and manually replenished with liquid nitrogen by trained and experienced staff.
  6. Our storage tanks do not rely on electricity to maintain their cryogenic environment.
  7. All tank rooms are live video monitored 24/7 with remote access cameras.
Security

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 & Practices

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:

            • Client specimens are split between two storage tanks when possible.
            • Back-up storage tanks are kept empty, cold and prepared for an improbable scenario where specimens would need to be moved for safety.
            • Liquid nitrogen bulk tanks are installed in each ReproTech location offering a substantial supply of nitrogen on premises.
Potentially Infectious Specimen Storage

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.
