Storage and Temperature Control

All fridges and freezers where human tissue is stored must contain a tSCAN temperature-monitoring probe. These probes can be obtained from the WIMM Facilities Manager. See WIMM E072 temperature monitoring. FluidX vials are now the preferred vial for long-term storage. These come with unique factory barcodes.


Human tissue must be transported appropriately. See WIMM E064 Transportation of material to and from the WIMM.


All tissue must be disposed of in accordance with University Policy and the HTA licence. See WIMM E007 Disposal of biological waste from containment level 2 laboratories in the WIMM and WIMM E012 Disposal of clinical waste from containment level 3 laboratories in the WIMM. Please seek advice from the WIMM Buildings Manager or the WIMM DI.
