|Significance and Use|
4.1 The proper design of low-temperature storage facilities ensures that sensitive biological materials are maintained under conditions providing maximum storage stability.
4.2 Properly designed and operated low-temperature storage facilities ensure that the handling of sensitive biological materials at low temperatures does not compromise stability (see Guide ).
4.3 Properly designed low-temperature storage facilities ensure that adequate safeguards are provided to prevent untoward events from compromising the stability of sensitive biological materials.
1.1 This guide covers recommended procedures for developing and maintaining low-temperature storage facilities for freezers with mechanical refrigeration.
