Purpose-Built Cold Chain Storage
PHCbi brand biomedical freezers are engineered from the inside out to create, maintain and restore precise temperatures necessary for vaccine storage. Our purpose-built -30°C to -40°C vaccine storage freezers are designed for temperature uniformity and stability that is not commonly found with household or commercial cabinets. PHCbi brand vaccine cold chain storage solutions satisfy current and evolving storage protocols essential for continued vaccine efficacy.
Natural Refrigerants, New Cooling Technology
Naturally occurring hydrocarbon [HC] refrigerants are environmentally friendly and compliant with sustainability objectives for non-depletion of ozone. A new generation of innovative, variable-speed inverter compressors deliver more efficient cooling and more responsive recovery time after door openings, with a configurable temperature range from -20°C to -30°C. This system is designed to manage overall performance, reliably protecting stored product and lowering operating costs by up to 28% compared to conventional models. Power consumption at rated storage temperatures confirms significant energy saving performance of the Biomedical ECO natural refrigerant platform, with performance similar to ENERGY STAR® Certified PHCbi freezers in the same class.
Smart Cabinet Design
Space saving design allows more installation options in crowded laboratories or warm hallways. The cabinet includes six wire shelves of which five are adjustable. Optional open top bins can be added to hold common 2" or 3" freezer boxes as well as miscellaneous packaging. High density CFC-free foamed-in-place insulation creates a temperature resistant wall structure. Painted steel interior surfaces simplify cleaning.
Safe Sample Storage
The double door design exposes only half of the stored product when one door is open. A standard door latch lock adds security, and an optional padlock can be installed to expand the envelope of protection. Protection and safety features include heavy duty, door-mount sealing gaskets to eliminate cold air loss. High and low temperature deviation alarms warn of temperature setpoint.
Microprocessor Controller and Alarms
The microprocessor-based temperature control system with LED display maintains accurate setpoint temperature to within 1°C over a range of -20°C to -30°C. Audible and flashing visual alarm lights supplement the setpoint deviation system to warn of parameter violations or loss of power.
