New freezer improves functionality with industry-leading energy efficiency

Eppendorf has launched its new CryoCube® F740 ultra-low temperature freezer line for laboratory sample storage with an exclusive event at the London ICEBAR on Wednesday 24th May 2017. The new freezer line comprises 5 new models, F740i with Advanced User Interface (AUI), F740wi a water-cooled option with AUI, F740hi high efficiency with AUI, F740hiw high efficiency, water-cooled and AUI and F740 with an LED interface.

The new CryoCube freezers demonstrate an increased capacity of 740 L (576 x boxes), improved energy efficiency without sacrificing temperature accuracy, and a considerable noise reduction creating a safe storage environment. Options such as air-cooling or water-cooling, right-handed or left-handed doors, and three or five interior compartments set new benchmarks for user demands. The CryoCube F740 is network-compatible and can be monitored through Eppendorf’s new device management software, VisioNize® – directly at the device’s touchscreen or flexibly at a computer or tablet in the office.

The launch was attended by over 50 representatives from all areas of science and industry and included presentations from both academic and industrial leaders in the laboratory field with focus on sample safety, traceability and sustainability without sacrificing temperature accuracy in the laboratory. The event also included a ‘-5˚C experience’ within ICEBAR London - the UK’s only hospitality venue with a permanent bar area made of ice. During the event, attendees enjoyed the opportunity to network during refreshments followed by liquid nitrogen ice cream.

Brian McTeir, Facilities and Services Manager at The Roslin Institute, presented important considerations on sample security, management, quality assurance and temperature monitoring. Brian highlighted that features of the Eppendorf freezers had contributed to achieving a reduction in freezer numbers within the laboratory areas.

Stephen Dey, Marketing Director at Eppendorf UK said: “We’re delighted to welcome our most distinguished customers to this important launch, introducing the next generation of the CryoCube freezer range.” He added, “We always endeavour to provide state-of-the-art instruments to our customers and this new freezer will help to deliver the best possible standards with excellent sample safety and product reliability. Other important factors such as efficiency, capacity and traceability are built into this new instrument. With the latest advancements, we believe the CryoCube F740 freezer line provides everything our customers require from an ultra-low temperature freezer.”

With more than sixty years’ experience of developing high quality instruments, consumables, and services for liquid-, sample-, and cell handling in laboratories worldwide, Eppendorf welcomes this latest product to its expanding portfolio.
