Product Description

The dual cooling system offers the highest level of sample protection through the use of two independent refrigeration systems that maintain -86°C temperature. The two circuits in this ultra low temperature lab freezer work together for fast temperature recovery, while the secondary system keeps the temperature at -70°C if a service event occurs. With two independent systems, each sustaining ultra-low temperatures, your samples remain safe. Optional CO2 backup provides and extra layer of protection.

Product Features

Ultimate Sample Protection

Performance & Reliability
Robust refrigeration system with purpose built compressors that are made for the application. Unique internal heat exchange increases performance envelope, tolerates high ambient temperatures
Security Control & Monitoring
Eye level door mounted color LCD touchscreen. All setpoints, alarms, data download preferences and notifications are accessed through a password-protected interface. Data management center with USB port
Space Saving VIP panels
VIP Plus insulation ensures exceptional insulation value with a compact footprint.
Advanced Frost Control & EZ latch
The Advanced Frost Control System and EZlatch door handle represent the key to an integrated access and frost mitigation system. This feature minimizes frost, protects stored samples, extends freezer life and makes ergonomic, one-handed door openings easy.
Testimonials
Our company has grown significantly over the last ten years. One thing I know I can always count on is DAI and their rep, Brian Langenderfer, doing their part to keep us informed of specials on instrumentation, get us great pricing on quality inventory, and rapid response times on all communications, including quotes. Not only that, but they coordinate quality movers to come onsite upon delivery and help unpack, move, and set up equipment professionally.  What I also appreciate as a lab manager is having the DAI employees, like Brian, to support all installations, upkeep, and is available for general questions. As our one lab has now grown to four, I always make sure my lab operation peers use DAI as their first “go to” for equipment purchases. We are always impressed and never disappointed with our DAI experiences.
