Why do you recommend Nunc Cryobank vials for liquid nitrogen storage and the Matrix ScrewTop storage tubes for storage at higher temperatures? Product FAQ

Answer

We recommend using Nunc Cryobank vials for liquid nitrogen storage as these vials are designed for use at ultra-low temperatures. They come without a lid so that they can be easily picked from the rack at ultra-low temperatures using a tube selection or pen tool.
On the other hand, we recommend Matrix ScrewTop storage tubes for use at higher temperatures (-80 degrees C and above). They work well for both manual and automated picking.
