On January 16 the ASSE South plains Chapter welcomed Rose Christina, Cold Storage Specialist with ThermoFisher Scientific. Kate McKee, Territory Sales Representative with ThermoFisher, coordinated Rose’s visit to Lubbock.
Rose was able to conduct two presentations, the first was a Lunch-and-Learn at TTUHSC; the second, an evening presentation for the South Plains Chapter.
She began her presentation by explaining that although cold storage refrigerators and freezers are not the most exciting piece of equipment in a lab or clinic, purchasing laboratory-grade equipment will come with piece of mind knowing that critical samples and vaccines will not be destroyed because of temperature fluctuations which are common in home-use models.
