Thermo Scientific Revco™ UxF Series -86°C freezers deliver a wide range of features, including maximum sample storage capacity with minimal footprint. Five models are available to accomodate your storage and lab requirements. Along with the innovative cabinet design, vacuum insulation panel technology increases the internal storage capacity of 2 inch vials up to 4.2%. Gain up to 76% more capacity in the same footprint with 1mL CryoBank tubes.
The UxF series also features a new refrigeration system with high-efficiency compressors for excellent performance and reliability. An outstanding BTU (British thermal unit) reserve leads to fast door recovery times so that sample integrity isn’t compromised. Your choice of refrigeration - for customers who require the strictest tolerances, the high-performance mode provides the tighest temperature uniformity and peak variation. For most applications, the energy savings mode offers excellent temperature control, with up to 15% savings on energy usage. The easy-to-use, touch-screen interface allows easy changeover between modes, as well as 24/7 monitoring of the freezer's health and access to a detailed event log, settings and user profiles. The built-in USB port enables easy downloading of event log reports to a portable drive, or uploading of freezer settings from one unit to another. Store up to 15 years worth of temperature and event data on the on-board computer.
The easy to remove, washable filter provides protection against dust on the condenser, which can cause reduced refrigeration performance and increased risk to samples. A brazed plate heat exchanger allows for more efficient heat transfer, with induction brazed joints to reduce leak potential and improve reliability.
Freezers are constructed out of rugged steel with a corrosion-resistant coating for long life and durability. Reinforced stainless steel shelves can store up to 278 lbs. of samples (depending on model). Outer door heated gaskets provide four touchpoints of security and seven zones of protection, maximizing cabinet temperature and eliminating frost build-up. Five polystyrene insulated inner doors help maintain cabinet temperature during openings and feature embedded rare earth magnets, eliminating exposed latches or magnets. An optional hands free locking option with proximity card access allows for even more security.
Additional features include a power management system that protects against a wide range of voltage variation, remote alarm contacts with 4-20 milliamp output compatible with external alarm and monitoring systems, and two rear access, 1-inch (25mm) ports. Freezers use environmentally-friendly, CFC/HCFC-free refrigerants.
Several optional features are available including LN2 and CO2 back-up systems, chart recorder, stainless steel inventory rackings and hands-free, proximity-card access system.
