The Challenge: Storing More Test Kits in Limited Space
This diagnostic laboratory conducts medical testing for thousands of patients at regional hospitals and health clinics. In order to process more COVID-19 tests, staff needed to increase storage capacity in two walk-in refrigerators.
Lab staff needed a compact cold storage shelving system that would:
- Optimize space to hold more test kits
- Keep kits organized
- Accept specially treated wire shelving
- Be easy to clean
- Be relocated if needed
The Solution: Cold Room Shelving that Moves
After looking at a variety of options, staff decided to purchase three Spacesaver moving shelving systems: one system for materials storage and two cold room shelving systems for storing the lab’s test kits in refrigerated rooms.
The Spacesaver rolling shelving systems in the refrigerated rooms feature half-height end panels with clear plexiglass extending to full height. The plexiglass allows for quick visual inspection while also ensuring that kits won’t fall off. The systems also have a “false floor” that is easy to clean and will allow the system to be relocated in the future.
How to Choose the Best Cold Room Shelving Systems
When you need to increase storage capacity in your lab, clinic, or hospital, be sure to optimize the space you have with high-density mobile shelving systems from Spacesaver and MOTUS.

Most importantly, the lab’s ability to run more tests means that patients and doctors are getting their COVID test results faster.
