Ultra-Low Temperature Lab Freezers [-80°C]

Wide Variety of Lab-Grade Models Designed to Preserve Biological Samples.

Our ultra-low temperature freezers come in a range of sizes and are specifically designed to preserve and store biological samples. Many of our models feature two independent systems, each sustaining ultra-low temperatures, to ensure that your samples are safe.

The majority of our ultra-low freezers have a temperate control range of -50°C to -86°C. We also offer a cryogenic freezer with a uniform temperature of -150°C that’s maintained with VIP© PLUS insulation technology for stable, long-term preservation of cells and tissue.

Our inventory rack options are designed for the safe, reliable storage of biologicals in biorepositories or other facilities where bulk consolidation of valuable samples is preferred. We also offer chest freezers that are ideal for storing DNA, RNA and other biological samples.

Ultra-Low Freezer Considerations

Our ultra-low lab freezers offer a range of options in terms of dimensions, storage capacity and temperature control. Here is an overview of what you should consider:

  • Capacity: We have several upright freezer models ranging from 12 to 29 cubic feet. We also have chest freezer models with capacity ranges of 3 to 25.3 cubic feet.
  • Location and placement: Our upright freezers come with space saving vacuum insulation panel (VIP) side walls, which maximize your space by providing more capacity in a smaller footprint.
  • Temperature requirements: Our models have accurate microprocessor controls, which provides outstanding temperature uniformity and recovery after door openings. Most ultra-low lab freezers have a temperate control range of -50°C to -86°C. Our cryogenic freezer has a temperature range of -125°C to -150°C.
  • Temperature monitoring and alerts: All models offer audio and visual alarms and an access port for remote temperature monitoring. Some models provide an eye-level door mounted color LCD touchscreen, which also provides a USB port for data transfer.
  • Shelving: Except for the chest freezers, each ultra-low freezer has three shelves, which are adjustable.
  • Hospital-grade cords: Our models are equipped with durable power cords that provide reliable, long-lasting performance.
  • Security: All of our ultra-low freezers include keyed door locks for security.
  • Door options: The models are equipped with insulated inner doors, and many feature an EZlatch, which is a simple one-handed opening mechanism that ensures the freezers operate at maximum energy efficiency.
Our laboratory at the University of Chicago has used DAI Scientific for over 15 years to help us establish and maintain a Freezer Farm.  We could not recommend DAI more highly for consistent service and reliability.  They provided any lab equipment we requested, and delivered competitive pricing and outstanding customer service.

Do you have any energy-saving models?
Yes, the VIP Eco series by PHCbi is a model that uses 60% less energy because of a combination of natural HC refrigerants and variable speed compressors. These models are ENERGY STAR® listed.
Do you have backup options?
Yes, the most common is a liquid CO2 backup, but we also have a LN2 backup option. For most -80°C applications, a liquid CO2 with suffice. For our cryogenic -150°C freezer, you should opt for the LN2 backup.
What voltage options do you have?
Most models have a choice of 115V or 208V/230V. Our local representatives can help make sure you pick the right voltage for your facility.
What kind of freezer rack options do you have?
We have side access and drawer racks that can fit 2” and 3” boxes or even centrifuge tubes. We have a wide selection, so please contact your local representative to see what works best for your application.
