Future Freezer Unit (2017-2020)
The project aims to develop a fully automated robotic freezer that can keep track of the growing number of blood, tissue and cell samples in healthcare, which is a consequence of the development of personalized medicine. The freezer should increase patient safety by minimizing the risk of mix-ups. This is achieved by letting the robotic freezer - and not human beings - store and hand out the samples. It is also intended to streamline workflows to free up human resources for other tasks. The freezer should be able to maintain and work at a temperature of minus 86 degrees C which will be on of the project challenges. There is a high potential for robotic freezer systems of this kind in tomorrow's hospitals.
