Storage tank where (surplus, or leftover) frozen embryos from IVF are stored

Not very sexy, but it works

Storage tank for frozen IVF embryos
After the embryos are frozen in the controlled-rate
freezer in special straws, they are immersed
and stored in liquid nitrogen in this tank.
Liquid nitrogen is -196ºC (or -320ºF). That's cold...

When the couple is ready to use their frozen embryos we thaw them and transfer them back to her uterus.
