Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers


Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers for Reliable Storage of Samples

Dependable performance over the range of -40°C to -86°C

Cell Culture Equipment and Incubators

Our -86°C laboratory freezers, also known as ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezers, have a field-proven history of reliability and uniformity. All PHCbi brand ultra-low freezers are designed to meet or exceed the requirements necessary for reliable, long-term storage of samples. Performance of all our -86°C freezers is measured by overall temperature, stability in high ambient settings, recovery following routine door openings and reproducibility of internal conditions in real world settings.

VIP Series

EZlatch Door Handle
When opening, the handle gently pushes the door away from the face of the cabinet. When closing, it evenly draws the door to the cabinet face against the multi-point gaskets. Download the VIP Series brochure to learn more.

The VIP Series represents an advanced combination of cabinet design, electronics and critical refrigeration components for enhanced security, performance and cost-effective operation.
The sophisticated cooling system of VIP Series freezers relies on a two compressor cascade system in upright models and a single compressor auto-cascade system in the chest freezer. Learn more about VIP Series ultra-low temperature freezers.

TwinGuard Series

TwingGuard Dual Cooling System
The TwinGuard refrigeration system is comprised of two independent auto-cascade circuits managed by an electronic controller. Download the TwinGuard brochure to learn more.

TwinGuard Series ultra-low temperature freezers elevate the level of protection by using a redundant cooling system design which provides advanced protection of contents by functioning independently and simultaneously. Each cooling system uses single compressor auto-cascade configurations to provide uniformity and stability regardless of high ambient temperatures.
TwinGuard ultra-low freezers are designed for long-term storage of high value biologicals including mammalian and plant cell cultures, stem cells, cell lines and subcellular components. Learn more about TwinGuard Series ultra-low temperature freezers.
