XDry Provides Illumina with Affordable Humidity-Controlled Storage

Jul 21, 2021

XDry Corp. today announced its association with Illumina, Inc. (NASDAQ:ILMN).

When the world’s leader in next-generation sequencing is using its technology to help the world track transmission, conduct surveillance, develop therapies and vaccines, and protect the vulnerable from COVID-19, the work needs to be perfect, leaving no room for error. Thus, it is essential that every piece of equipment it uses be of the highest caliber.

At Illumina, the goal is to apply innovative technologies to the analysis of genetic variation and function, making studies possible that were not even imaginable just a few years ago. It is mission critical to deliver innovative, flexible and scalable solutions to meet customer needs. As a global company that highly values collaborative interactions, rapid delivery of solutions and providing the highest level of quality, it strives to meet this challenge. Illumina innovative sequencing and array technologies are fueling groundbreaking advancements in life science research, translational and consumer genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

When Illumina needed to improve its staging of material by having perfect humidity control, high-resolution, overall low achievable %RH and fast recovery, it went to XDry.

“XDry has been integral to Illumina’s process for years,” commented Jose Romero, Process Development Engineer, Illumina. “Kevin and the XDry team have been great and easy to work with. Any questions I had, he would respond promptly and diligently. Purchasing equipment and setting up have been straightforward and easy thanks to the XDry team.”

XDry cabinets are the perfect solution for printed circuit board and moisture-sensitive component storage. XDry humidity-controlled storage cabinets are self-contained, low maintenance storage systems. There is no need for nitrogen or compressed air, just plug into the wall and they are ready to go. XDry storage cabinets satisfy standards such as IPC/JEDEC J-STD-033 and IPC/JEDEC J-STD-020. The cabinet environment can be maintained from ambient to 1% RH, providing constant, stable storage at precisely the RH level desired.
