Mechanical, Air Phase Cryopreservation
The MDF-C2156VANC-PA cryogenic freezer is engineered from the inside out to create, maintain, and restore precise temperatures. The PHCbi brand mechanically refrigerated cryogenic freezer uses a reliable, high performance, hybrid cascade refrigeration system designed to achieve cryogenic temperatures of -150°C.
Mechanical cryogenic refrigeration eliminates the reliance on LN2 as a primary cooling medium for a more efficient storage medium known as "air phase" cryogenic storage. Air phase cryopreservation offers a more economical alternative to liquid nitrogen-based systems, with built-in redundancy safeguards for the ultimate in safe cryogenic preservation.
PHCbi VIP® Plus Insulation Technology
Inside-out engineering starts with our patented VIP Plus insulation composite which results in a highly efficient, thin-walled cabinet. The insulated inner lid improves temperature uniformity, minimizes cold air loss from frequent lid openings and extends warm-up times during power outages. The PHCbi VIP Plus cryogenic refrigeration offers superior performance providing unsurpassed uniformity in the chamber from top-to-bottom, side-to-side, and front-to-back.
High Capacity Storage, Minimal Cabinet Footprint
The VIP Plus cabinet design dramatically reduces wall thickness, allowing for increased cryogenic storage space in a smaller footprint. Store up to 165 2" boxes or 105 3" boxes.
Economic Alternative to LN2 Storage
The PHCbi MDF-C2156VANC-PA cryogenic freezer eliminates hazardous operating conditions as well as frequent maintenance and cost requirements of LN2 storage. It also minimizes the chance of cross-contamination among multiple samples in cryogenic storage.
Microprocessor Temperature Control
The integrated microprocessor-based controller and LCD graphic display allow for intuitive management and monitoring of critical set points. The controller uses an extremely precise and long-lasting platinum RTD sensor.
PHC Designed Compressors
The robust -150°C Cryogenic Freezer is powered by PHC designed compressors. This provides superior performance leading to faster pull-down speed and unsurpassed uniformity throughout the chamber.
Energy efficiency in VIP Plus freezers is achieved through balanced temperature performance and power management.
