Cryogenic Storage Containers range from 407-1,630 L.

Press Release Summary:

Accommodating both vapor- and liquid-phase storage, CryoExtra(TM) Containers are vacuum-insulated, stainless steel vessels that minimize top-to-bottom temperature variation. Lid and neck design, combined with advanced temperature monitoring, helps prevent temperature fluctuations that occur due to lid openings. Microprocessor-based LN2 level control ensures that liquid nitrogen levels are tightly controlled, while de-fog function allows push-button sample identification.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches New, Highly Efficient Cryogenic Storage Solutions

Thermo Scientific CryoExtra Maximizes Sample Protection

ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today introduced new Thermo Scientific CryoExtra high-efficiency cryogenic storage containers, which provide greater sample-storage capacity in a smaller footprint.

The CryoExtra(TM) vacuum-insulated, stainless steel vessels are available in four different sizes, from 407 liters to 1,630 liters, accommodating both vapor- and liquid-phase storage. These containers minimize top-to-bottom temperature variation, preserving the integrity of critical cryogenically frozen samples. Its innovative lid and neck design, combined with advanced temperature monitoring, reduce temperature fluctuations that occur due to lid openings. Furthermore, the microprocessor-based LN2 level control ensures that liquid nitrogen levels are tightly controlled, and the de-fog function allows easy, push-button sample identification.

With the ability to store up to 90,000 1.2 - 2.0 mL vials, the largest of the four CryoExtra models (1,630 liter) has the same external footprint as the 1,350 liter unit. All four CryoExtra containers can accommodate both vertical and horizontal racks, and the Thermo Scientific racking solutions are specifically designed for this vessel configuration, further maximizing capacity.

As a user-friendly and convenient cryogenic storage solution, Thermo Scientific CryoExtra containers incorporate a stainless-steel platform near the vessel opening, providing an ergonomic work surface. In addition, integral folding steps ease sample retrieval and an interior trap door allows simple sub-carousel access.
