PHCbi Ultra Low Freezers offer unrivalled temperature uniformity and stability

“My samples are irreplaceable – I need ultimate levels of security”

TwinGuard:Ultimate Sample Protection


TwinGuard ULT freezers have two independent refrigeration systems to provide the highest levels of sample security. PHCbi’s Dual Cooling System offers a backup system ensures that the integrity of irreplaceable and potentially life-saving samples are not put at risk. If one refrigeration system fails, the other refrigeration system will activate to maintain a temperature of up to -70ºC. TwinGuard will provide a peace of mind and has been a reliable cold storage solution for many who prioritize and value sample security protection. The Dual Cooling System is designated to securely store valuable biological samples. It consists of two individual compressors to provide a reliable -86ºC Ultra-Low temperature environment. Should unexpected failure occur in one cooling circuit, the other will maintain at least -70ºC.

“Energy efficiency is a top priority.”

VIP ECO | PRO ECO: All Round Energy Efficiency


VIP ECO, unlike conventional ultra lower freezers, utilizes natural hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants to provide minimal energy consumption, reduced environmental impact and substantially lower running costs. HC refrigerants have a high latent heat of evaporation making them much more efficient at removing heat from the freezer chamber than conventional refrigerants, resulting in up to a 55% reduction in energy consumption and costs. THE VIP ECO helps organizations to meet environmental objectives.

Helping organizations to meet environmental objectives, PHCbi has built ULTs to use natural refrigerants to minimize energy consumption, reduce environmental impact and substantially assist in lower running costs. These refrigerants also have an extremely low Global Warming Potential. Check out the VIP ECO video to learn more.


Both the PRO ECO and VIP ECO ULT freezers offer new exchange heat exchanger design for greater surface area contact and overall efficiency. The PRO ECO -86°C ultra low freezer is part of our range of ECO ultra-low freezers with natural refrigerants. They minimise energy consumption, reduce environmental impact and are cost-efficient. Innovative technology and Class IIa medical device certification provide secure storage of valuable research and clinical samples.

The ECO series have vacuum insulation panels that help to maximize sample storage capacity within an optimum footprint.

VIP | Complete Overall Versatility


VIP ult freezers are specifically designed to provide reliability and uniformity for complete overall versatility. The VIP ultra low temperature freezer series are an economical choice when selecting a ult that achieves 30% more storage capacity than conventional insulated freezers along with 6 times stronger thermal resistance.
The VIP series contain densely packed, open cell foam insulation under the vacuum panel. This configuration dramatically enhances the insulation capability of the freezer while reducing the wall thickness.

Testimonials and Case Studies

National Center for Global Health and Medicine BioBank

Huge freezers line the basement where the room temperature is kept low. This is the BioBank of the National Center for Global Health and Medicine (NCGM) in Shinjuku, Tokyo, where patients are examined and treated above ground, while in the basement lie the seeds of cutting-edge research.

The PHCbi freezers are where these seeds are stored. Read on to find out how they are being used and why they were selected for this facility. We interviewed Satoshi Suzuki, Manager of the BioBank Promotion Department, National Center for Global Health and Medicine.
