Bluechiip’s patented technology is embedded across our unique chips, readers and software. They combine to create a unique advanced solution that solves many of the problems in sample management today. Our users and partners all benefit from the growing ecosystem of Bluechiip Enabled products.
The Bluechiip device not only provides ID but also senses temperature and operates in harsh environments including liquid nitrogen temperatures. The ID in every Bluechiip device is physically hard-coded making it secure and immune to ionizing radiation.
While RFIDs have utility under normal conditions, they are typically not specified to operate at ultra low and cryogenic temperatures and rely on data written to memory which can be damaged by ionizing radiation or inadvertently overwritten.
Bluechiip devices are based on MEMS technology, which means they are mechanical devices. Physical microbeams, each with a unique frequency profile, are decoded by our readers to provide ID. Temperature changes are detected and recorded by the reader as the frequency profile shifts when the devices are exposed to different conditions.
Yes, one of the major advantages of Bluechip’s solution is that you can have an entire chain of custody and identity for that particular sample- all while providing critical temperature data at each step in the process. Data is collected by readers and software and stored securely on a central database. This provides confidence that critical information for every sample can be captured and accounted for.
Bluechiip Enabled items can be continuously monitored outside of storage and during critical internal handling processes. Our award winning Bluechiip CryoBox Tracker™ is one example of how Bluechiip Technology can be configured to monitor temperature (read more in our Case Study)
Yes, Bluechiip’s advanced sample management system can be scaled to meet the specific needs of your workflow or project. Many of our users choose to adopt Bluechiip for use with a specific project or sample type to start and then choose to grow across other cold storage/sample management needs. Contact Bluechiip today to learn more about how we can configure a solution to meet your specific needs.
Yes. Bluechiip provides support for data migration and systems integration to ensure workflows continue to operate smoothly. Bluechiip Enabled CryoTags and CryoBoxes can also be used to manage a wide variety of samples and equipment to help you get the most out your existing inventory.
Yes. Bluechiip supports integration across all levels of hardware and software. The software’s web API can be configured to share data across platforms to ensure your data is easily accessible through any existing LIMS or ERP system. Our team can also tailor hardware solutions to meet your specific workflow needs.
