Freezers are used to store commonly used samples in industrial, clinical, and research samples between -10°C to -150°C. Upright, chest, and countertop models are available. Enzyme freezers are used for storage applications that are incompatible with temperature fluctuations that result during auto-defrost cycles of standard freezers.
Models are available for the safe storage of flammable or volatile materials. Plasma freezers are specifically designed for the storage of plasma.
Laboratory freezers are used for short- or long-term storage of biological, pharmaceutical, and other laboratory samples within specific temperature ranges. Designs vary based on sample types and space requirements.
Typically, laboratory freezers:
- Include upright, chest-style, benchtop, or under-counter models
- Offer variable structural options (solid or clear doors, shelves or drawers, multiple internal compartments, etc.)
- Range in capacity from 1.3 cu. ft. (L) to 80 cu. ft. (2,265.35L)
- Require manual defrosting to remove ice build-up
