MDF-C2156VAN-PE Cryogenic Freezer

The most uniform storage temperatures for cryopreservation solutions

The Cryogenic MDF-C2156VAN-PE Ultra Low Temperature Freezer is Ideally suited for cryogenic and long-term storage in laboratories and no loger uses harmfull CFC's to achieve a ultra low temperature of -150ºC. The Cryogenic MDF-C2156VAN-PE is a mechanical cryogenic freezer.

VIP PLUS technology maximizes storage capacity over conventionally insulated models. Whatever your preservation needs are, Panasonic provides the right equipment to meet your exact requirements. Panasonic preservation systems employ advanced technology to insure a high precision temperature environment.

Environmentally friendly

The Cryogenic MDF-C2156VAN utilises binary mixed non-HCFC refrigerants. The new Vacuum Insulation Panels and double door gaskets reduce the power consumption.
