FREMONT, CA: Succoring to track valuable laboratory samples, RURO, a LIMS, RFID and sample management solutions provider introduces FreezerPro RFID Kit version 3. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) enables users to determine the identity of an asset with the aid of radio frequency communication.

 The kit comprises of FreezerPro v7 upgraded software, compact and easy to use new RFID printer Zebra ZD500r, Impinj RFID Reader with updated RURO firmware and reliable, easy to scan Impinj Monza 4 tagged cryo-labels.

FreezerPro creates a unique ID number for each vial and associates the number with sample information and location. The RFID transmitter imprints this ID number on an RFID microchip affixed to a vial. Now with the RFID number one can retrieve the ID and all associated data using an RFID reader. The major highlight of this kit is that the signal from RFID tag(s) can be detected remotely which helps in obtaining vial or boxing data without opening a box or a freezer.

“The hardware and firmware upgrades in FreezerPro RFID Kit v3 give customers what they really need. Easier, faster, and more reliable tracking of important laboratory assets ensure safety, security, and efficiency in the laboratory. These functions are critical, especially for laboratories managing hazardous and/or rare bioagents,” says Vlad Lebedev, RURO’s System Architect and Chief Executive Officer.

FreezerPro v7 runs as a central data repository for storage location, sample data, shipping tracking, and more. The updated software has been redesigned and enhanced with user-friendly interface and improved performance with large datasets. While facilitating communication and collaboration in other areas, the sensitive data is protected by controlling access data at multiple levels.

Better tracking of key assets, eliminating errors through automation, and increased efficiency in the laboratory are the key features extended by the company while amalgamating FreezerPro software with RFID tags. The kit claims to be ideal for those organizations requiring a sample management solution to evaluate FreezerPro and consider the benefits of RFID over barcodes.
