Product Features

Greater than 99% reliability rate
The robust -86°C upright lab freezer system is powered by PHC engineered compressors. The system provides dependable cooling by balancing temperature performance and energy management.
VIP Plus Vacuum Panel Insulation
Inside-out engineering starts with our patented VIP Plus insulation composite which results in a high efficient, thin-walled cabinet.
Superior Temperature Uniformity
The combination of patented VIP vacuum insulation panels with PHC designed compressors, specific to ultra-low temperature applications, assures superior uniformity (+/-5°C) throughout the cabinet to maintain the integrity of the samples.
High Capacity Storage, Minimal Cabinet Footprint
The patented VIP insulation composite maximizes storage space in VIP Series freezers. Store up to 576 2" boxes or 384 3" boxes within an efficient 9.48 ft2
Microprocessor Controller and Alarms
Freezer operation is managed by microprocessor-based controller that combines security, monitoring, predictive performance and data logging functions into a single, eye level LED display.
Extra Protection, Easy Access
The stainless steel framed, insulated inner doors with gasket seal firmly against the cabinet to help minimize change in interior temperatures during routine door openings. Inner door latches feature an ergonomic design for one-handed operation.
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.

Why D.A.I. Scientific

    Not all lab equipment suppliers are created equal. Here is why you should get a quote from D.A.I. Scientific:
  • Competitive Prices
    Since we directly represent the manufacturer, you get the best price available — unlike a distributor who buys the product and then marks up the price to you. We have long term relationships with these manufacturers that provide not only a great price but superior equipment packages.
  • Providing the Right Recommendations
    We work with a lot of lab equipment consultants and architecture and engineering firms to provide recommendations for new buildings or renovations. But we’re your resource no matter what. Companies continually call us for ideas and recommendations on equipment purchases even after a project is finished, and we’re happy to help.
  • 50+ Years of Experience
    We’ve sold thousands of pieces of lab equipment, which means we know how to avoid common challenges and pitfalls that can occur during a purchase. If you need help with purchasing a single piece of equipment, or an entire lab for a new building, let our experience save you time, money and unnecessary headaches.
  • No Surprise Fees
    We believe in complete transparency, which means we won’t surprise you with any fees during the process. We’re up front about our pricing, and our goal is to help you understand the complete cost from order and delivery to setup and training.
  • Training
    Our experienced, factory-trained representatives have the specialized knowledge to answer your questions and help you pick out exactly what you need. They can also help you set up your equipment, provide training for you and your lab technicians and answer questions over the lifespan of your product.
  • One-Source Provider
    We have a long history of working with market-leading manufacturers, and customer service is our top priority. Whether you need a single replacement unit for your lab or an entire equipment package, D.A.I. Scientific is your one-source provider for all your laboratory equipment needs.
