"It's easy and good to use so we use it all the time. It facilitates our laboratory, even the dry laboratory. We are going to use more and more experiments using controlled-rate freezers as it helps me and our laboratory."Review date:

BioCool are safe and reliable controlled rate freezers for cryopreservation of human and animal embryos, and biological and tissue cell lines.
Uniquely, BioCool systems do not require expendable liquid nitrogen. Instead they use a thermal medium such as methanol or ethanol and plug simply into a standard electrical outlet to provide controllable, low-temperature cooling. To ensure a consistent temperature profile is maintained at all locations and allow efficient heat transfer, the thermal fluid is kept circulating by a magnetic stirrer which can also be adjusted to suit the requirements of each application.
The BC4 cools to -40°C and the BC8 features a temperature range of +30°C to -80°C with control accuracy of ±0.5°C and storage of multiple multi-segment programs. "
