Laboratories are under increasing pressure to decrease their energy consumption in order to meet strict emission targets and lower utility bills. Finding ultra-low temperature cold storage equipment that can help reduce environmental footprint and that is equipped with features to maintain sample storage conditions can be challenging. The catalog of Energy Star–certified freezers now being offered includes the new TSX, Forma 89000, Revco RLE, TLE, and HERAfreeze HLE series. These freezers are designed to reduce energy consumption while ensuring sample protection. To reduce energy consumption, the certified freezers incorporate features such as the unique V-drive technology that continually detects and adapts to user patterns to provide temperature uniformity throughout, fast door-opening recovery, and lower heat emissions to reduce HVAC costs.
