Cooling Core, for 0.5°C to 4°C for use with CoolBox XT
About CoolBox XT
Benchtop cooling workstations that provide sample cooling or freezing without ice, electricity or batteries!
- Can hold microfuge tubes, cryogenic vials, PCR tubes and plates, assay plates and more.
- The XT Cooling Core can maintain sample temperature from 0.5 to 4°C for over 16 hours;
- The XT Freezing Core can maintain frozen samples for up to 10 hours; using dry ice in the base provides ultra-cold temperature (-78°C) for snap-freezing samples in tubes or plates.
- CoolBox systems may also be used with dry ice to create a compact, portable, snap-freezing workstation for bacteria, virus and proteins.
The CoolBox XT system can be used with either tubes or plates.
Ideal for cooling cryoprotectants and thawing. Suitable for use in hoods and cGMP areas.
Use with internal cooling core to provide cooling of samples for up to 16 hours at 0 to 4°C with lid closed, (or up to 10 hours with lid open).
The CoolBox XT system is capable of keeping samples below 0°C for up to 5 hours, with lid open.
Samples are organized, secure and dry.
All tubes are upright and dry.
Thermo conductive metal alloy tube modules eliminate inconsistencies which occur when inserting tubes directly into ice, dry ice, alcohol baths,
water baths or other common laboratory temperature sources.
Place the CoolRack module directly onto a temperature source and it will rapidly adapt to that temperature from -196°C to >100°C.
Can be autoclaved, high heat sterilised or decontaminated with bleach, alcohol, or other disinfectant or lab detergent.
How it Works
Each CoolBox system consists of a base, cooling cartridge/core and a lid.
CoolBox XT workstations also include a magnetized collar and a 1 to 8˚C temperature indicator for visual assurance of proper temperature.
Each CoolBox is designed to receive thermo-conductive sample modules that sit directly on the cartridge/core keeping samples at desired temperature for hours.
The cartridge/core is pre-frozen in a -20˚C freezer.
