How to Choose and Use Frozen Tissue Equipment and Supplies


Ocean Genome Legacy (OGL recommendations as of January 2024

For Freezer Tubes, we’ve had to pivot multiple times, particularly in the wake of COVID. Cryotubes were/are a big part of the COVID testing/vaccine pipeline, so many types became unavailable, etc. Currently, we use: Corning™ Externally Threaded Cryogenic Vials.

Under no circumstance would OGL recommend Nunc tubes. Even though they are externally threaded and have O rings, OGL regularly sees up to 25% of them leak in air transportation and lids regularly overtighten to the point of breaking/no longer being sealed.
