Laboratory and Industrial Refrigeration

Laboratory refrigeration systems provide safe cold storage of critical samples, reagents, blood, plasma, enzymes, cell cultures, and patient medication. Lab refrigerators are a step up from your standard household units, however, with features that address sample-damaging temperature variations and unpredictable defrost cycles. Refrigerators are a fixture in most labs, including research, medical, and pharmaceutical facilities.

What are the Different Types of Laboratory Refrigeration Systems?

  • Blood bank refrigerators maintain blood products at proper temperatures (e.g., 4 °C).
  • Chromatography refrigerators feature precise temperature control and instrument setup ability within the chamber.
  • General-use refrigerators are available in full-size, benchtop, and under-bench configurations.
  • Explosion-proof refrigerators, pharmacy units, and combination refrigerator/freezers.

What Are Some Considerations When Choosing a Laboratory Refrigerator?

First, choose the correct size, since a filled unit improves temperature uniformity and reduces heating and cooling cycles. Consider safety alarms, data recorders, and solid versus glass doors. Bottom-mounted evaporative compressors tend to be quieter and save energy.
