»There is an alarm in your lab, you‘d better come over…«

Due to the 50,000 valuable samples in your freezer, you rushed to the lab. Finally, the temperature was still ok, false alarm but you were done for the day.
Just imagine, you get an alarm notification of VisioNize by email about your freezer, and in the next step, you log into the system and check online the temperature graph and the events of your freezer – still being at home. Then, you can still decide if you have to go to the lab or if you still have some hours - or if it is again a false alarm.

Your freezer becomes a smart storage with VisioNize keeping your valuable samples safe.
VisioNize offers you the possibility to remotely monitor your freezer. Take advantage of customizable notifications to meet your needs. More peace of mind for "You and Your Lab" with VisioNize.

Bothered by loud ULT freezers?


The CryoCube F740h has an improved sound level of 47.8 dB. The "i" versions provide you some silence level of even down to 41.3 dB. These "i" versions are equipped with a sound-reduction system. Based on a different air filter position at the front of the freezer, the air flow is now guided in a more silent way towards the ventilation system. At the back of the freezer, a special compartment further reduces the sound level. Relax when working near a CryoCube F740 "i" version.

Burdened by unsorted boxes cluttering your freezer?


Make your scientific life easier: Store your freezer storage boxes within organized freezer racks. The CryoCube F740 series offers two different ways to store boxes: The 3-compartment and the 5-compartment style. A maximum of 576 boxes can be stored in a 3-compartment CryoCube F740 equipped with MAX racks or 504 boxes equipped with standard racks. The 5-compartment CryoCube F740 can be used for up to 528x boxes.
For other racking systems, please check the inner dimensions of the freezer and contact Eppendorf.
Additionally, you might think about a sample management solution beyond sample location documentation by paper or spreadsheet. Check out eLabInventorysoftware.

Need a special set-up?


All units are available with 3 or 5 compartments. The 3-compartment unit has 3 shelves (fixed bottom one + two removable shelves). The 5-compartment unit has 5 shelves (fixed bottom one + 4 removable shelves).
The air-cooled versions offer a left-handed or right-handed outer door handle as an option to adapt the freezer to the conditions in your lab.
The built-in inverter technology enables the same freezer to be used on 100, 115, 208, and 230 V, just change the power cable.

Focusing on sustainability?


The "h" versions are the green flagships - by using hydrocarbon-based cooling liquids (R290/ R170), the power consumption is further reduced compared to classic cooling systems.
CryoCube F740 models are also validated by the ACT® concept of "My Green Lab®".
The CryoCube F740hi and F740hiw are certified by ENERGY STAR®.

Hydrocarbons


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). Based on IEC 60335-2-89, there are no additional safety instructions for using green gases in ULT freezers necessary.
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.
Due to this goal, we at Eppendorf clearly plan to replace all classic cooling ULT freezers within the next years.

Remember 2008?


As being one of the very first movers for green gases at -86°C, Eppendorf has now more than 13 years of experience in R&D, production, logistics, and service in the field.
In 2008, the (Eppendorf) New Brunswick Premium U570h was one of the very first commercially available ULT freezers driven by green cooling liquids.

Green CryoCube® F740 series


A major step is now done by focusing the flagship CryoCube® F740 series on future-proof green cooling liquids only: The F740h, the F740hi, and the water-cooled F740hiw.

Air-conditioning at the limit? Go for water-cooling


You can improve the conditions and comfort in your lab while saving energy by installing a water-cooled Eppendorf freezer. Many ULT freezers use the air in the laboratory to extract heat energy from the freezer’s heat exchanger. Another option is to use a water-cooled ULT freezer connected to a facility’s recirculating water system. A constant stream of water removes the heat from the heat exchanger, rather than the ambient air in the lab.
• Reduce air conditioning power consumption by letting the water carry away the heat
• The heated cooling water can be reused for other heat demanding systems in the facility

System specifications:
• Minimum flow: 29 L/h
• Inlet pressure: 1 – 10 bar
• Temperature range of water: 7 °C to 25 °C

Annoyed by uncomfortable handling?


Ergonomics is far beyond the »ergonomically designed chair«. Eppendorf started to optimize the laboratory devices regarding ergonomics already in the early 1970s.
In 2003, we started the PhysioCare® Concept, focusing on ergonomic liquid handling devices like our pipettes.
Nowadays, the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept is broaden up to include further laboratory products as a holistic solution to harmonize the workflow in your laboratory with your health and well-being, e.g. for the Eppendorf ULT freezer:
• Intuitive interface for easy handling
• Automatic vent port for easy re-access to samples
• Low noise level for convenient working conditions
• Ergonomic door handle for easy opening and closing
• All cable interfaces are located at one corner for convenient access

Lost in samples? Stay organized!


Over many years, you collect hundreds and thousands of samples – samples that are the results of years of hard work – samples of high value. When storing these in the ULT freezer at -80°C, it is vital to keep them safe and accessible.
Many scientists still use spreadsheets or even paper-based lists to keep track of their storage. While these solutions may work most of the time, they are susceptible to human error, damage, and misplacement.

End-of-Life



Disposal of packaging
The packaging of the ULT freezer contains different materials, this includes a wooden pallet, cardboard, a plastic dust cover, and some foam parts. Recycling of materials becomes more and more important every day: Are you aware that nearly all cardboard material is recycled in Europe? Our freezer packaging cardboard material consists of ca. 70% recycling material. Please support the global sustainability initiative of recycling valuable raw material by also collecting the freezer cardboard packaging material and disposing of it in the appropriate collection container at your organization. In respect to the plastic dust cover made of LD-PE and the foam parts, we recommend to select a dedicated recycling partner where PE material can be recycled. We suggest you contact your local waste hauler or facility management team to understand the available recycling options for your organization.

Disposal of instrument
Our freezers last for many years, but if they need to be replaced, we kindly ask you to fulfill local requirements for disposal of these instruments. We strongly recommend a certified local recycling partner with experience in instruments with active cooling. Keeping it “local“ reduces the impact of transportation, and the „certified“ aspect is recommended due to the safe and sustainable removal and recycling of the cooling liquids.

Decontamination
This piece of equipment was used in a laboratory and/ or was used to handle biological samples. Please keep in mind to adequately decontaminate the equipment which needs to be disposed. Check local requirements. For more information, get in contact with your local biosafety officer and/ or waste officer. Check if your local recycling partner has special instructions and/ or documentation requirements. You may also use the Eppendorf decontamination form sheet as guidance.
