Mobile epiLab transfers samples to archive

After the successful mission in the framework of the German environmental speciman bank (ESB), the mobile epiLab shows another advantage. The cryo tank with all the samples is transferred within the vehicle to its final destination without ever breaking the cold chain. This time it is only a short trip to the archive of the German environmental specimen bank being located in the south of Münster (Westfalia), Germany. For the next samplings in Halle (Saale), Greifswald and Ulm it will be a longer journey. But not more effort. The picture shows the project leaders at Fraunhofer IBMT, Dr. Dominik Lermen (group manager human samples-environmental specimen bank) and Daniel Schmitt (group manager lab technologies) transferring the samples from the trailer to the archive.
