Selecting a Lab Freezer on Amazon.com
A lab freezer is used to provide a stable environment for sensitive samples in a variety of settings including laboratory, research, pharmaceutical, and biochemical applications. Variable temperature lab freezers enable the operator to set the temperature within a specified range. Ultra-low temperature lab freezers sustain temperatures as low as -86 degrees C. Digital freezers designed for storing high-value items can have datalogging, alarm, locking, and other security features. Freezer capacity and configuration should be selected based on the purpose of the freezer. For example pharmaceutical and vaccine freezers are most often compact, have a preset temperature, and have locks or other security features. Other factors to consider when choosing a laboratory freezer include capacity, footprint and available space, shelf configuration, desired temperature and temperature stability, defrost capability, and access to a power source.
