Very low operating costs
Temperature uniformity, reliability, and validation are key to what life scientists are searching for in an ultra low temperature (ULT) freezer. The Cryometrix T-150 provides a quantum leap forward in cryopreservation technology. Additional management issues such as a considerable reduction in net operating costs, better use of available laboratory floor space, significant reduction in electrical power use, and the elimination of CFCs have become the governing principles of laboratory managers.
With up to 90% less electrical consumption, the T-150 reduces annual electrical use by over 34,000 kilowatts per freezer, per year at a setpoint of -86°C through efficient design, the elimination of refrigeration compressors, and the required HVAC component.
The Cryometrix T-150 programmable ULT freezer delivers on all points. The T-150 freezer is a technological breakthrough that incorporates a compressor-free, redundant, liquid nitrogen-based technology. The T-150 is a stable, scalable, adaptable, and validatable platform. The payload capacity is 21.25 ft3 (600 L = 30,000 2-mL vials), and with its all-stainless steel upright design, the T-150 addresses several user issues such as security, ease of operation, cleaning, and the system is designed to eliminate icing.
Cryopreservation starts with thermal stability, and reliability is a close second. The T-150 accomplishes both through the use of CoLD® technologies, which yield temperature uniformity of ± 3°C. Temperature recovery from an open/close event is less than 10 minutes with a ΔT of 5°C.
Thermal stability during a ramp to setpoint is key for sensitive sample survival. Degradation of vials due to rapid thermal shock is prevented using the programmable control of the T-150. A precise ramp rate of up to 3.5°C/minute can be programmed by the user. The T-150 has a MTBF (mean time between failures) of three years, with the only preventative maintenance being the calibration of temperature and pressure sensors, all of which can be completed while the freezer is in operation.
