your frozen samples just melt away. Keep them frozen with the
CryoCooler™ from OPS Diagnostics. It
is designed for small-scale cryogenic sample preparation. Working
with samples that require cryogenic temperatures means working with
liquid nitrogen, which is not only difficult, but possibly hazardous.
The CryoCooler™ helps to reduce those hazards by featuring a liquid
nitrogen charged, insulated reservoir. To use, pour the liquid
nitrogen into the reservoir and begin using.
The newly designed well and tray are sized to accommodate a standard cryogenic freezer box. The CryoCooler™ is very effective for sorting and finding tubes stored in liquid nitrogen. It provides the perfect environment for keeping small samples outside of the liquid nitrogen freezer/tank without them thawing or even warming above -130°C. As the nitrogen evaporates from the well, a positive pressure prevents frost accumulation on samples in the well.
The CryoCooler™ can be used as a stand alone unit or alternatively in conjunction with our miniaturized mortar and pestle system, the CryoGrinder™. With the CryoGrinder™ or other vials or tools, place the items in the reservoir and allow them to chill for several minutes prior to use.
This system combines a highly insulated cooler with a liquid nitrogen reservoir so to maintain temperature sensitive samples at vapor phase temperatures. The 7 x 5" reservoir contains a sorbent that is charged prior to use with liquid nitrogen. The sorbent prevents spills and splashing of the liquid nitrogen while it does allow for a slow release of coolant.
