Archiving

Your valuable materials + our trusted archiving

The protection of your data and study materials cannot be compromised.  Whether you plan to access your materials today or years from now, you need the security of knowing that your specimens, wet tissues, paraffin blocks, histopathological slides, raw data, study plans, and reports are safe. At Envigo, we have built an infrastructure specifically designed to keep your materials safe.  Located in Füllinsdorf, Switzerland, our three-level storage facility features more than 17,000 running meters of shelf space. Each 800 m2 floor of our facility is dedicated to housing and protecting the life span of your specific materials.

  • Floor 1: Organs/wet tissues archived in formalin (space features special ventilation systems)
  • Floor 2: Paraffin blocks and slides
  • Floor 3: Raw data (paper), hard copies and originals
