The Safest ULT Freezers for longterm storage of critical biologicals
The TwinGuard ULT freezers where developed to offer ultimate protection for valuable samples such as those in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector, research institutes or blood and tissue banks.
Dual cooling system
An advanced Dual Cooling System provides an unparalleled level of safety and added peace of mind through the use of two independent refrigeration systems that reliability maintain an ultra-low temperature environment, even if an unexpected failure should occur in one cooling circuit.
The dual cooling technology differs significantly from conventional cascade refrigeration technology in fundamental design and operation. In dual cooling systems, two independent refrigeration systems provide a reliable -86ºC ultra-low temperature environment.
Should an unexpected failure occur in one cooling circuit, the other can maintain the freezer in the -70ºC range until service can be arranged. This level of ultra-low temperature back-up cannot be achieved by conventional cascade systems.

TwinGuard freezers at the Pirbright Institute
The Pirbright Institute is a world leading centre of excellence in research and surveillance of animal viruses and zoonotic diseases. First established 100 years ago, as a cattle testing station to combat Tuberculosis, it now plays a vital role in the investigation and control of animal diseases with serious economic and public health implications. As the only specialist animal pathogen facility in the United Kingdom (UK), its work is critical both nationally and internationally.
Having benefitted in the past from a long standing relationship with PHC, the Institute turned to PHC to help equip a new high containment laboratory built at its Main Campus in Surrey. With the purchase of 30 MDF-U700VX TwinGuard -86ºC freezers, the Institute has already seen improvements isample security, workflow and resource efficiency within its new high containment facility.
