Yes, the CryoCube F740h (box enabled) can be connected to VisioNize Lab Suite via a Gateway box. It enables remote monitoring and status checks, alert notifications form anywhere.
What are the height requirements when placing the CryoCube F101h under a work bench?
The external dimensions are 83 x 90 x 56.6 cm (HxDxB).
The work bench should allow for a clearence of at least 85 cm, measured from the bottom edge of the bench to the bottom floor.
What kind of cooling liquids are used for the CryoCube F101h?
The cooling system operates with "green" cooling liquids (R290/ R170) only.
In 2014, the European Union announced a ban of all non-hydrocarbon-liquids (EU_517/2014) until 2020 (also known as "F-gas regulation"). Hydrocarbons are also known as green or natural gases. The two major representatives are propane and ethane (known as R290 and R170). This ban includes all cooling devices except instruments for temperatures below -50°C. Based on this exception, ULT freezers of -86°C can continue to run with HFCs. Still, it makes sense to replace the HFC cooling liquids also for ULTs as global warming needs to be slowed down.
What kind of racks are available for CryoCube F101h?
CryoCube F101h freezers have 2 internal compartments, each of which can hold three racks.
All rack options for different vessel formats are listed in the brochure "Store More".
Is the CryoCube F101h provided with inner doors?
The chamber is divided by 2 inner doors sealing the two internal compartments.
The inner doors are equipped with seals to minimize the loss of cold when opening.

Yes, a lock is integrated in the door handle of the CryoCube F101h. Two keys are available.
Where do I find the control panel of the CryoCube F101h?
The control panel of the CryoCube F101h is located in the upper right corner on front of the device.
What kind of insulation is used for the CryoCube F101h?
The Freezer is insulated using polyurethane foam (PU) as well as vacuum insulation panels. This results in a low energy consumption of the F101h and leads to long warm-up time during power failure.
What means "Pull down time"?
This is the time required for a unit to pull down from Room temperature to -80 °C. This usually takes between 3-4 hours for an Eppendorf freezer. The pull down data for Eppendorf freezers can be found in our familiy brochure "Pure. Ultracold".
