Cryogenic Storage Chest Freezers

Maintain uniform temperatures of −140° and −150°C (safely below the −130°C glass transition temperature of water) with Thermo Scientific™ Cryogenic Storage Chest Freezers. These freezers offer mechanical cryopreservation for long-term biological storage and are safer and more convenient than LN2 systems.

Top-to-bottom temperature uniformity is dramatically improved when compared to LN2 vapor.
Cell viability is improved as biologically relevant, thermally driven reactions are not known to occur.
System offers manual defrost.
