Maintaining integrity of biological assays

24th July 2019


The DrySyn ChilliBlock from Asynt allows users to undertake sensitive biological assays in a temperature-controlled manner, vastly reducing the risk of expensive biological samples, reagents or enzymes degrading due to adverse temperature conditions.

Traditionally methods of cooling biological assays have relied upon direct immersion in insulated ice buckets which are prone to considerable temperature variability, sample contamination and loss of wetted labels. In addition, using this methodology can only maintain a cooled temperature for a limited time, and requires staff to periodically monitor and add new coolant (ice).

Modular in design, the ChilliBlock base can be simply attached to most laboratory heating/cooling circulators thereby enabling stable temperature control at 'important biological temperatures' such as 0°C or 37°C for long periods of time. Designed for versatility, the ChilliBlock has interchangeable blocks for tubes, vials and plates as well as custom DrySyn blocks to fit any Eppendorf tube or vial.

For laboratories required many to undertake larger numbers of biological assays, the low profile of the Chilliblock allows it to be fully compatible with robotic sample handling systems.

Manufactured from durable anodised aluminium, ChilliBlocks offer good chemical resistance and will reliably allow users to maintain the integrity of their thermally sensitive biological samples for many years.
