German term or phrase: Rückstelllager
I am not even sure how to categorise this - it's from a series of very brief case histories. This one concerns a pharmaceuticals company and all the case studies are about replacement storage/shelving solutions. So it's some kind of storage area and I just need the precise term.

Explanation:
I give it low CL as not quite sure but: it concerns a pharmaceuticals company, and these companies are obliged by law to store samples, and this is called "Musterrückstellung".

agree  Steffen Walter: These samples are called "Rückstellproben/-muster" or "Rückhaltemuster" (retention/retained samples) - "retained sample(s) storage (area/facility)" would be appropriate here. Cf. http://www.proz.com/kudoz/271436 and http://www.proz.com/kudoz/1452188
