When it comes to maximizing sample storage capacity, Eppendorf Innova ULT freezers set the standard. These lab freezers like the Innova U535 take advantage of ultra-efficient, ultra-compact vacuum insulation panels which are used in combination with traditional insulation to slim down the freezer wall thickness from 130 mm to 80 mm. These models are ideal for labs short on space when -80°C are needed.
Besides sustainability, the main focus of our freezers is on ergonomic aspects. Easy closing of the outer door, ergonomic door handle, display on eye-level, or easy-to-clean stainless steel interior are based on the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept: Safe grip but very light forces needed to open and close the freezer door.
Cost of ownership
When investing in a new ULT freezer, the product price itself is only one aspect. Others include the long-term costs of power consumption and the costs of service and spare parts. Keep in mind, a high-quality ULT freezer will do its job in the lab for 10 years or more.
The Innova line is equipped with reliable heavy-duty compressors (2-stage cascade cooling system). Quick pull-down times enable fast re-use after cleaning/defrosting of the instrument. The freezers have short recovery times after opening as well as built-in voltage stabilizers to provide extra sample safety.
The freezer temperature range is from -50 °C to -86 °C.
For even higher sample safety, the Eppendorf Innova upright freezers can be equipped with CO2/LN2 back-up systems and a chart recorder. Temperature monitor systems can be used to monitor the freezers remotely.
Sustainability for ULT freezers is a challenge: Maintaining extremely low temperatures of -86 °C for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week needs energy.
By following the epGreen concept, the Eppendorf freezer R&D team developed intelligent solutions where energy savings are combined with durable long-lasting product quality and ergonomic aspects. This future-oriented instrument class provides
