Hospitals frequently use liquid nitrogen in different departments, depending on the requirements. Hospitals have departments such as dermatology wings and medical suites which apply the liquid nitrogen to those patients in need. Hospitals also use the liquid nitrogen to store samples which include tissue samples, blood samples, vaccines etc. that require liquid nitrogen coverage in specific storage cryogenic equipment e.g. Haematology, Immunology, Pathology etc.
Laboratories range from the food industry, technical instruments, storage sampling and many more. Depending on the requirements of the liquid nitrogen from each industry will depend on the type of set up in the lab. These laboratories range from smaller dewars for topping up tanks to PLV (pressure vessels) and storage tanks.
In Universities there are multiple departments that require the use of liquid nitrogen. Different departments need it for specific requirements such as storing samples etc. Departments can include bio chemistry, pathology, neuro science, chemistry, physiology, dental science and dept. of medicine etc.
Liquid Nitrogen is critical in the running of IVF clinics. Liquid Nitrogen allows the process to be complete by storing (eggs, semen and embryos) for the ability to help couples have a baby. It is also gives both women and men a chance to store their samples for use in the future or if they are going through treatment (cancer) to allow the process to become parents later on in life.
