Stem Cell Related Patent Number US6564120

Title:Storage system, particularly with automatic insertion and retrieval
Inventors:Richard, Daniel D.; Sedona, AZ, USA
Vago, Robert; Palm Harbor, FL, USA
Summary:Described herein is a novel storage system for the storing of biological material. The invention comprises a computer-controlled robotic arm system for automatic insertion and retrieval of samples from storage units, such samples consisting of biological materials such as blood, stem cells, and DNA. The storage unit is described as having at least three vertical sides, at least two of which are provided with a plurality of individually accessible storage receptacles, into respective ones of which a plurality of boxes or cassettes are removably disposed. Robot mechanisms are disclosed, to which a computer is operatively connected for controlling movement and access operations and for registering the contents of the storage receptacles. Claims of the invention include additional storage receptacles which may be disposed in a rectangular array inside a wall of the room, when the storage unit is disposed in a room. Further described are boxes or cassettes which contain a multiplicity of vials at least some of which may be segmented, with a plurality of separable compartments.
Abstract:A storage system particularly for storing biological materials such as blood, stem cells, and DNA includes a storage unit having at least three vertical sides, at least two of the three vertical sides each being provided with a plurality of individually accessible storage receptacles. A plurality of boxes or cassettes are removably disposed in respective ones of the storage receptacles. At least one robot mechanism is movable along a track section or path extending to the two vertical sides of the unit, the robot mechanism having a robotic arm for accessing the storage receptacles. A computer is operatively connected to the robot mechanism for controlling movement and access operations thereof and for registering the contents of the storage receptacles. Where the storage unit is disposed in a room, additional storage receptacles may be disposed in a rectangular array inside a wall of the room. The boxes or cassettes contain a multiplicity of vials at least some of which may be segmented, with a plurality of separable compartments.
