Heathrow Arctic Squares Cryostorage Boxes safely store vials from –196 to 121°C for repeated use in mechanical freezers as well as liquid nitrogen. Polycarbonate boxes are designed with unique features to help the user orient, identify, and access vials with ease. The forward-sloped base and high-contrast, imprinted indexing on the transparent lid ensures quick visual orientation.
A hinged lid provides easy one-handed access to samples. A built-in stop prevents the lid from swinging too far when the box is picked up by the lid, helping to prevent accidental spills.
