CoolBox cooling and freezing system
BioCision's CoolBox cooling and freezing system is designed for all-day ice-free temperature control of biomedical samples.
The CoolBox systems come with a reusable cartridge that gives researchers a portable, convenient method for achieving unlimited cooling duration without the temperature variability and contamination risks associated with ice- or gel-based products. CoolBox provides unlimited cooling duration by simply switching cartridges. The cartridges consist of a gel pack with a novel thermo-conductive alloy shell, which enables fast recharge in a standard -20 ºC lab freezer. A single cartridge provides 4 to 10 hours of ice-free cooling at 0.5 ºC to 4 ºC, depending on whether the CoolBox lid is off or on. When a CoolRack is placed on the cartridge, the system provides unparalleled ice-free temperature consistency, eliminating edge-effect commonly found with plastic cooling boxes. The compact design and ice-free technology make CoolBox ideal for use in tissue culture hoods, biosafety cabinets, GMP suites, and in other situations where space is restricted or where ice could be a source of contamination. The light-weight, fracture-proof construction also makes CoolBox highly portable, facilitating its use for any biomedical sample collection and ensuring the protection of samples during transportation between laboratories. The CoolBox system accommodates a variety of thermo-conductive CoolRack and CoolSink modules for microfuge tubes, cryo vials, FACS tubes, mass spec vials, SBS-format multi-well plates, and PCR plates, tubes and strips. BioCision's CoolBox PCR96 and CoolBox PCR384, for example, make PCR set up ice-free and hassle-free. Each system kit includes one CoolBox, one CoolRack PCR and one +2 ºC cooling cartridge. Additional +2 ºC cartridges are available separately.
