Efficient Cold Sample Storage: Reducing the environmental footprint (and financial impact) of freezer use in research

Sponsored by: Brooks Life Sciences
Speakers

Abstract
DATE:  April 2, 2020
TIME:   11:00am PT, 2:00pm ET
 
For nearly a decade, efforts have been growing within the laboratory sustainability community to minimize the environmental impact of cold sample storage in research and to communicate these opportunities to scientists.
 
When cold storage is employed with reduced energy usage and space optimization, research benefits from better sample management, better protection of research samples, and cost savings through efficient use of resources.
 
This presentation will discuss best practices promoted by the Freezer Challenge, a yearly competition organized by My Green Lab and the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL). This competition involves laboratories in the higher education, non-profit, federal, and private sectors. We will also discuss other benefits of efficient cold storage, such as improved resiliency, optimized use of freezer resources, and reduced infrastructure, space, and utility needs that lead to lower overhead costs.
 
This webinar is part of a series that will be presented by I2SL.
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Define how efficient cold storage practices can positively impact research such as improved sample integrity through better freezer performance, better management of research specimens, and lower overhead costs through reduced utility and infrastructure needs.
  • Apply best practices promoted through the Freezer Challenge to minimize the environmental footprint of cold sample storage in research labs.
 
 
 
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
 
LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
