Scientific freezers are typically used in laboratories, medical specimen handling clinics and also in research and teaching clinics or hospital settings. They are also ideal in laboratories in universities, colleges and even in high schools. These specially designed freezers have additional features over a standard upright or chest freezer that you may find in a home setting. These additional features found in the design and manufacturing of these freezers provides much more accurate temperature control, enhanced insulation and cleaning options as well as different sizes and storage options.

 

Most of the larger laboratories, medical centers, teaching classrooms or labs or clinical settings will require full sized scientific freezers. These can be enzyme freezers or standard lab freezers depending on the specific needs of the facility. An enzyme scientific freezer tends to have a greater range of temperature settings and can be set much colder on the low end of the range to ensure any slight temperature variance will not cause damage to samples stored within. The lab freezer is commonly found in general laboratory settings, clinical settings and in classrooms since that very low temperature of -32 degrees Celsius or -26 degrees Fahrenheit.


Energy saving is also an important consideration in most medical facilities, teaching programs or clinics. The new materials used in the construction of scientific freezers are designed to help maintain a stable interior temperature without any increase in temperature which was more problematic in older models. This high level of insulation provides that temperature stability and also means that the cooling system is not constantly cycling on and using additional electricity. Unlike old styles the new models also use a very specialized cooling process. This is known as dynamic-convection temperature conditioning. The air is maintained at a constant cold temperature through convection cooling, not through the use of fans or blowers. With this type of cooling the temperature is uniform in all parts of the freezer from the exterior of the shelves closest to the door to the interior areas closest to the back wall.


Opening of the door will result in a temperature change, which is immediately recorded and noted by the microprocessor that controls the internal temperature. This then automatically activates the convection cooling system that responds and begins to stabilize the temperature immediately. In addition these freezers come equipped with both visual and auditory warning systems that let the lab techs, students or medical staff know that the temperature is outside of the pre-set range for the specific samples contained within. This is very important for highly sensitive materials where a few degrees too warm can result in degradation or destruction of the samples. Many units also have the option to connect the system to a remote monitoring system that allows supervisors or on call staff to constantly monitor the temperature and make adjustments as necessary.


A scientific freezer doesn't have to be a full sized unit. There are many different zero-clearance under the counter models that are perfect for single users or smaller labs, clinics or practices. Since they can be easily housed under any standard sized counter they are also an ideal option to workstations or smaller rooms where space saving is key.
