Lab Freezers for Mad Scientists

Lab Freezers are everywhere, well not everywhere, but in most labs of scientific inquiry. Lab Freezers are an indispensable unit in the researchers arsenal, they are used to cool specimens for preservation. They have various other utilities such as storing blood plasma or other blood products, vaccines and various other medical pharmaceutical supplies. They are required to be completely hygienic and reliable and therefore are very different from the standard refrigerators we use in our homes or in restaurants.

There are four major types of laboratory refrigerators.                                          

Explosion proof refrigerators which are designed to store hazardous chemical substances and flammable liquids. They are safe to be used with combustible substances due to a lack of electrical wiring in the main chamber that may cause sparks. Blood bank refrigerators that store blood plasma samples and other blood related products, the key requirement for these refrigerators is reliability. Lab fridges maintain consistent temperatures and monitor the temperatures with digital displays being general laboratory refrigerators they include lockable easy-to-clean sections.

Chromatography refrigerators are mainly used for research experiments. Laboratories where medical samples and procedures require precise temperature settings are the ones using them. These also require a good bit of stability.

Although there are exceptions, Laboratory refrigerators typically operate from 2°C to 10°C, It is best to use a refrigerator that closely meets temperature needs because the lower the temperature the more power it needs. The control sets for laboratory refrigerators usually range from a simple dial thermostat to sophisticated digital LED displays that allows for precise PLC (programmable logic controllers).

Another helpful feature is an automatic defrost function which helps in keeping the refrigerator frost-free and keeps it running at its optimum capacity. Laboratory refrigerators with manual defrost systems are suggested when it is crucial to protect samples from drying out.

The drivers for the Laboratory Freezers market are the technical progress and infrastructure development in healthcare facilities, the rising geriatric population, increasing number of research laboratories and rise in medical emigration. Advancements in regenerative medication, bio-banking and drug discovery are other major motivations behind the market. There has also been an increased interest in the research activities in biomedical sciences which will boost this growth. Also a large number of local players who are providing cheap refurbished devices while maintenance costs and energy quota being on constant rise are limiting the biomedical Lab Freezers industry.

Other important facts to keep in mind when selecting a Lab Freezer is to consider the space needs. Space saving products are more vulnerable to temperature variations because of their size, Although Larger single units are also available. Also the Lab Freezers need to be able to locked, in order to prevent unofficial personnel from accessing important items such as clinical samples, narcotics, and vaccines. They also require separate cabinets as well as an alarm system to avoid contamination of materials and stop unofficial persons handling sensitive items.
