In our Christmas newsletter we will take a look at what the team have achieved this year and also the offers we have available over December and January.
The team have been busy again this year, John has passed his CPC truck licence, which enables him to drive up to a 32 tonne truck for freezer deliveries and disaster recovery.
Human Tissue Authority (HTA) and ISO 9001:2008
Both MTS Cryo Stores and Cool Repair Scientific have had another successful audit for ISO 9001:2008 and also passed their HTA audit with flying colours, with no findings or recommendations. Expansion of MTS Cryo Stores
MTS Cryo Stores are currently installing a new liquid nitrogen room to increase the liquid nitrogen storage capacity at the Nottingham facility. The room will be fitted with an oxygen depletion monitoring system and an air-conditioning system. The liquid nitrogen room is scheduled to be completed in December 2015. MTS Cryo Stores helps client with potential disaster
One of MTS Cryo Stores disaster recovery clients required our help in November. The lift at their facility was broken, they normally use the lift to transport their liquid nitrogen store tanks down to the ground floor, where they are filled by their liquid nitrogen supplier. Because the lift was out of order they could not fill their store tanks up, which meant that their samples would have been at risk from thawing. MTS Cryo Stores were at hand to help by stair climbing the clients store tanks down the stairs, waiting for them to be filled by the liquid nitrogen supplier and then stair climbing the store tanks back up to level 2. MTS also provided the client with an extra liquid nitrogen store tank filled with liquid nitrogen, to ensure they had enough liquid nitrogen for their samples until the lift was operational again.
â€œMTS cryostores responded promptly to our request to activate our disaster plan, successfully moving our large pieces of equipment safely to the top floor of the building â€. Say's Sally Anderson, Laboratory Manager, Stem Cell Transplant Laboratory, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.
You never know when a disaster may strike, you could have a power cut, freezer failure, or in this case the client was unable to fill their tanks with liquid nitrogen. It is better to be safe than sorry, call MTS Cryo Stores on 0115 9753 743 or email email@example.com for more information on our disaster recovery service and how we can help protect your samples.

Cool Repair and MTS Cryo Stores Sailing Day
In September the team took part in a sailing fun day at Carsington Water in Derbyshire. The day started with a training session followed by a sailing session, with Arien sailing one boat and Ryan, Arien's son sailing the other. The team had some soup to warm up and were then let loose again after lunch. The boys were allowed to sail on a laser boat on their own, which was very funny as John Balmforth one of our engineers managed to get stranded on an Island and Ryan, our other engineer capsized and had to be rescued by Louise our Archivist. Meanwhile Arien decided to take Amanda and his wife on a larger sail boat, which was supposed to be safer than the smaller boats. The weather turned and they ended up in a storm, the sail on the boat broke and they had to be rescued and towed to shore.
The day ended with a BBQ and all in all I think every one had enjoyed the day.
