Automated ordering & Delivery

e.Freezer

benefits

The e•Freezer is an automated biochemical product delivery system developed by Genesearch.  It provides all the convenience of on-site freezer access, without any of the accounting and stocking problems normally associated with these systems.  

Scientists use a smartcard to gain access to the system, which allows them to purchase items stored in the freezer and order items not currently stocked, even ones that can’t be put in the freezer. Stock levels are continually adjusted according to local and national buying patterns. 

The e.Freezer is connected to the Internet, providing rapid information transfer for ordering and supply. Because of its fully automated delivery, accounting features and Smartcard access, the e.Freezer enables access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for users, yet complete accounting information for purchasing departments and rigorous stock control for suppliers, without substantial administrative overheads.
