Micronic has added a Modular Vertical Freezer Rack to its range of sample storage accessories for biobanking.
The Modular Freezer Rack provides a flexible and low cost solution for organising sample storage in a chest freezer. The lightweight modular storage system fits into all chest freezers and is fully compatible with all ANSI/SLAS standard footprint storage racks.
To set up system click individual rack holders (height: 68mm) together to construct a tower of up to 15 holders. Each rack holder has the capacity to house a single Micronic storage rack (Roborack-96, Comorack-96, Comorack-24 and Arctic Rack-24).
When using the Micronic Loborack-96 with a low profile cover, one rack holder accommodates two Loboracks, providing a space saving storage solution. Manufactured from a special durable high grade plastic - Micronic Modular Vertical Freezer Racks are ideally constructed for long term storage at ultra-low temperatures.
Compared with storing samples in an upright freezer, the main advantage of a chest freezer is that they are more energy efficient due to better cold air retention. In addition to offering lower ongoing energy consumption, chest freezers are typically less expensive to purchase and tend to have longer life cycles than upright models.
