Thermo Fisher Scientific Adds New Ultra-Low Temperature Chest Freezer to Green Portfolio
Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the addition of a new freezer to its ultra-low temperature (ULT) green portfolio, the Thermo Scientific TDE Series -80°C Chest Freezer. With increasing reliance on temperature-sensitive materials and therapeutics, laboratories require equally sensitive and highly consistent cold storage equipment. The freezer uses eco-friendly refrigerants and improved temperature regulation efficiency to offer approximately 25% reduction in energy usage for most size and voltages over the previous design.
Building off Thermo Fisher’s 80 years of experience developing cold storage solutions, the Thermo Scientific TDE Series -80°C Chest freezers, powered by H-drive hydrocarbon systems, deliver the reliability and enhanced performance required for vital research without compromising sustainability goals. With rapid temperature recovery after the door opens and tight peak variation, the TDE Series Chest Freezer is designed for both frequent entry and long-term storage applications. The use of natural refrigerants and insulation with extremely low Global Warming Potential (GWP) and Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) levels far exceeds current regulatory requirements and ensures laboratory compliance with U.S. EPA SNAP & EU F-gas regulations.
“The new TDE Series Chest Freezer enables us to meet both performance and sustainability goals for our customers. Its hydrocarbon refrigerants are best-in-class for reducing global warming impact, and rapid temperature recovery improves energy efficiency within the lab,” said Chris Champlin, vice president and general manager of laboratory equipment, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “From our first ULT freezer in 1940 to this newest freezer, we continue to deliver new cold storage solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers.”
The new TDE Series Chest Freezers are part of a full line of ultra-low temperature freezers that provide a wide range of capacities and configurations, enabling users to maximize their cold storage workflows.
