Deep Freeze RFID Label Challenge
The cryogenic storage industry faces many challenges in maintaining the correct freezing temperature. The freezing temperature of stem cell vial research material samples and fertility specimens ranges from -80 °C [-112 °F] to -196 °C [-321 °F]. Operators must obey the governments orders and the storage facilities must record accurate information position, description and processing procedures of all samples.
Samples were previously identified by handwritten or printed labels. This then developed to identification via barcode. However, these vial and tube labels peel off easily and get damaged making it difficult to identify specific samples when stored at a deep freeze temperature. With the increase of storage facilities, the need to strengthen supervision is becoming stronger and stronger, and the manual process of reviewing is complicated, time consuming and prone to errors.
The implementation of deep freeze RFID labels are currently on the agendas of hospitals, medical companies and labs.
Nowdays, RFID tags are widely used in various applications at room temperature and at higher temperatures of up to 200 °C. On the other hand, in healthcare applications, biological samples need to be kept below -135 °C [-211 °F] to avoid degradation. This kind of cryo tracking RFID tag is big challenge. However, the implementation of an RFID system is a proven security system that several hospitals and research laboratories have deployed. The RFID vial and tube labels are used for cancer and stem cell research.
