Lease of Radio Frequency Identifier (RFID) reader

We wish to perform a 3-year study on the reliability of RFIDs for tracking cryogenically preserved materials in 2ml tubes at -196°C. We wish to lease the equipment, rather than purchase as the technology is as yet unproven. The supplier should be able to provide RFID-tagged 2ml sterile cryotubes for purchase and to provide under a lease arrangement two RFID readers- one for the cell culture laboratory and one to read 10x10 cryo storage boxes in the liquid nitrogen storage facility, as well as associated computer hardware and software. The RFIDs must may capable of being read at temperatures below -180°C.
