New addition is easy with the Scienceware® Secador® refrigerator ready desiccator.

What happens to materials that need to be kept cold and in a low humidity environment? Up until now a clumsy and unrefined contraption was often pieced together.

The Scienceware® Secador® Refrigerator Ready Desiccator makes that a thing of the past. This new addition to the best-selling Secador® desiccator family is designed to fit, and provide ease of use, inside refrigerators and -20°C freezers.

Features include an extra-long depth to maximize refrigerator / freezer space, a slide out shelf that provides easy access to contents, and a fold down door with a one-handed locking latch for ease of use with right or left handed refrigerator / freezer door openings.

"A specially designed desiccant support at the top of the cabinet keeps the desiccant highly visible to allow quick determination on saturation status," according to Robert N. Petersen, Product Manager for Bel-Art Products.

The shelf can hold up to three (3) Scienceware® Desi Cans™ or up to two (2) Scienceware® Disposable Desiccant Cartridges. "Just one of either of these desiccants is enough to keep the atmosphere moisture free, but adding more will permit a longer time period before desiccant regeneration is required."

Rugged, clear polycarbonate provides a chemical resistant, see-through body that allows full visualization of the desiccator contents and years of service.

Its extra wide rubber feet prevent the desiccator from sliding and easily span any wire shelf spacing in refrigerators / freezers.

"Designed to maximize functionality when placed inside a refrigerator or -20°C freezer, this economical desiccator can also be used at room temperature anywhere in the laboratory," added Petersen.

It is useful in biology laboratories such as Biochemistry, Physiology and Cancer Research where biologically active compounds and reagents often require 4°C both cold and dry storage conditions.

Analytical labs that have small vials of standards and other materials that require desiccated storage, Pharmaceutical R&D facilities, labs with walk in cold boxes and labs with large refrigerators would also benefit from its use.

Suggested list price for the Scienceware® Secador® Refrigerator Ready Desiccator, catalog no. F42011-0000, is $275.00.

Scienceware® Desi Cans™, catalog no. F42046-0000, have a suggested list price of $17.45 each and Scienceware® Disposable Desiccant Cartridges, catalog no. F42048-0100, have a suggested list price of $73.05 for a package of 6.
