Ultra-low temperature cold storage units are widely used by research hospitals and laboratories to preserve the integrity of vaccines and specimens. An ultra-low freezer is made from high-quality materials to provide a better and long-term return on investment than a household refrigerator or freezer. Its ultra-low temperature helps protect laboratory and clinical biologics while providing you with more storage capacity.
360 Medical offers ultra-low freezing equipment from our 2 main product lines—Higher and Pharmacold—that is suitable for laboratory and clinical samples, vaccine storage, and more with chest, under-the-counter, and upright freezer configurations. We offer various designs for ultra-low temperature freezers with different sizes depending on storage capacity and footprint space.
Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers: Uses and Benefits
Ultra-low temperature conditions are extremely important for the safe storage of samples and reagents. They typically cool to temperatures between -40°C to -86°C. This is significantly lower than those of the typical freezers used in homes.
ULT freezers are essential items of equipment in many laboratories, pharmaceuticals, hospitals, doctor’s offices, cannabis manufacturing, and even beauty spas.
The following temperature-sensitive and biological materials can be stored in ultra-low freezer units:
- Tissue Samples
- Therapeutic drugs
The ultra-low temperature freezers from 360 Medical have a high-performing cooling system that ensures temperature uniformity, reliability, and energy efficiency, making them ideal for the secure storage of vaccines and specimens.
Here are some of the few benefits of investing in our product:
One of the crucial steps in the cold chain process includes having a dependable temperature-controlled storage area that protects biological material.
Typically, biological material loses its viability and effectiveness when its temperature changes. Cabinet temperature can be precisely monitored and tracked with ultra-low temp freezers.
Power outages can cause temperature changes that harm your products and cause you to lose samples. In addition to onboard temperature probes, secondary monitoring and backup systems on some ULT medical freezers can assist in preventing temperature fluctuations.
How to Choose the Right Ultra-Low Freezer Solutions
Finding a freezer that meets your requirements and suits the size of your facility is crucial. Keep the following tips in mind when selecting an ultra-low deep freezer for your establishment:
Medical freezers provide precise, uniform, and long-lasting temperature setpoints, unlike home freezer units. While the typical range for a medical freezer is around -18°C to -20°C, ultra-low medical freezers are made to keep temperatures as low as -86°C.
It is essential to find a balance between the amount of storage you need and the floor space in the facility. Despite taking up the most vertical space, upright units offer the most storage space per square foot of floor space. Undercounter and bench-side storage applications are ideal for smaller models. A larger model ultra-low freezer cabinet with "room to grow" will benefit you in the long run if you intend to increase your sample inventory.
Your budget limit can extraordinarily influence the size and kind of cooler you can afford. Determine the capacity temperature requirement and capacity limit you need for your space and have a budget plan while shopping.
Other factors to consider:
- Energy Efficiency
- Locking Features
- Manual Defrost Capabilities
- Temperature Display and Alarms
- Broad operating range of temperatures for different purposes
