Efficient Cold Sample Storage Webinar: Reducing the Environmental Footprint of Freezer Use

April 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

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:
  • Understand 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.
  • Learn about best practices promoted through the Freezer Challenge to minimize the environmental footprint of cold sample storage in research labs.
