Cryostorage Equipment

Middlesex Gases supplies both Taylor Wharton and Chart equipment - both leaders in the industry.

Units feature a four thermistor based controller that is especially user friendly. The low maintenance, all stainless steel construction and large neck opening provide a durable environment for your biological samples. The CryoStorage units will provide either vapor or liquid storage with storage capacities from 5,200 vials to 39,000 vials.

Cryoshippers, Cryofreezers and Cryosystems

These systems provide the consistency required when dealing with critical samples. See the importance of validation of temperature and LN2 savings below.

Traditional Cryofreezer Chart MVE HE
Traditional Cryofreezer -125°C at top and -170°C at bottom - Big Variance. Chart MVE HE Freezer -190°C at top and -196° at bottom - Consistently.
With the traditional cryofreezer, the bottom racks are in liquid. With the Chart MVE HE, no racks are in liquid - all dry sample storage.
When traditional freezer is open, all top racks fall below critical temperature of -135°C. Only your samples are affected when you pull the rack out of the Chart MVE HE.
The traditional freezer has limited data log capability. The Chart MVE HE with the TEC 3000 Controller has extensive data log capability.
LN2 product loss with a traditional freezer with a foam top is excessive. LN2 product loss is much lower with Chart MVE HE - 10 - 20% annual savings.
