Freezers, Laboratory, Multiuse, Upright

Definition : Multiuse laboratory freezers with a front-opening (upright) configuration, designed to store laboratory products and samples, such as in vitro diagnosis reagents and laboratory tissue and body fluid samples, at temperatures from 0 to -20 or -30 degrees Celsius (32 to -4 or -22 degrees Fahrenheit). These freezers are usually made with a corrosion-resistant (typically stainless steel) interior, minimizing the risk of adulteration, contamination, and/or corrosion of contents; the internal shelving is appropriate for storage and easy localization of laboratory products and samples. Upright multiuse laboratory freezers include automatic defrost capability, maintaining the temperature in the entire freezing chamber within preestablished limits during the process; they also include sensors, controls, monitors, and alarms for dependable long-term storage following laboratory storage standards. Programmed (e.g., linear rate) or manual control of the freezing rate is possible in most upright laboratory freezers. A wide variety of freezer capacity and shelf configurations are available.
