Cooling Workstation, Single Capacity

Cooling Workstation, Single Capacity is an ice-free bench top cooling workstations providing sample cooling or freezing without ice, electricity or batteries

  • Ice-free cooling/freezing systems with lid
  • Fits a choice of Thermoconductive Rack modules
  • Small footprint
  • Keeps samples cold for up to 16 hours
  • Keeps samples frozen for up to 8 hours
Overview

Cooling Workstation ice-free systems are bench top cooling workstations that provide sample cooling or freezing without ice, electricity or batteries. Cooling Workstation systems are versatile and accommodate a variety of sample formats and temperatures. The modular design enables the use of Thermoconductive Rack sample modules to hold microfuge tubes, cryogenic vials, PCR tubes or plates, and more.

Key Features
  • Secure Sample Preparation
    • Operates without ice, batteries or electricity
    • Keeps samples cold at a uniform 0.5 to 4.0°C for up to 16 hours
    • Keeps samples frozen (<0°C) for up to 8 hours
    • The built-in 1-8ºC temperature indicator provides visual assurance of operational temperature while working
  • Broad Compatibility
    • Versatile: accommodates most Thermoconductive Rack modules
    • Small footprint ideal for use in the hood especially in keeping temperature sensitive solutions cold
    • To extend the cooling/freezing duration, keep an additional Cooling/Freezing Core in the freezer and replace the cartridge as needed
  • How it Works: Ease of Use
    • Freeze the Cooling/Freezing Core in -20°C freezer
    • Place frozen core in base/holder
    • Rest Thermoconductive Rack module on cartridge
    • Module will equilibrate and maintain temperature via thermo-conductivity
    • To extend the cooling/freezing duration, keep an additional Cooling/Freezing Core in the freezer and replace the core as needed
    • Dry ice may be used in place of the cores to create a compact snap freezing workstation
