While ULT freezers are rugged and reliable, and can go through wear and tear over time. With the excessive usage they’re put through, it isn’t uncommon for the ULT freezer’s compressor, door/gasket, or condenser to stop working properly.
Luckily, they’re usually easy to diagnose and fix.
Ultra-low temperature freezers, also known as ULT freezers operate at extremely low temperatures, designed to keep items preserved for longer periods of time. They are long-lasting installations that require minimal maintenance while offering good value for money. Here’s why all laboratories should invest in a ULT freezer.
If you’re looking to buy a top-tier and highly-advanced Ultralow and Ultrafast temperature freezer to meet industry requirements, Z-SC1 has just introduced the perfect ULT freezer—the TWINCORE ECO—with over 50 technological upgrades.
As the cold weather rolls in, health experts in the United States are encouraging people to get flu shots. The influenza virus mimics many of the symptoms of COVID-19 and is problematic for multiple reasons:
More than 11 million people in Canada have been tested for COVID-19, and thousands more are tested each day. To maximize the accuracy of these results, significant care must be exercised while handling and transporting these samples.
Countries around the world are in a multibillion dollar race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. Meanwhile, COVID-19 specimens sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are carefully stored and collected for diagnostic purposes. This requires proper cold storage solutions that store specimens at the right temperature, ensuring they’re viable for testing and research.
At the moment, 40 different vaccines for COVID are under test and trial. While we haven’t reached an endpoint with any of them, we soon will. One vaccine being developed by the University of Oxford is looking very promising and is in advanced stages of its development.
Since we’re nearing the closure of these trials and might have a vaccine soon, it’s time we also begin worrying about other matters: such as where to store these vaccines once we have them?
