Thermo Scientific Revco RDE Series Ultra-Low Freezers

Thermo Scientific Revco RDE Series Ultra-Low Freezers, powered by H-drive, feature four upright models, maximizing storage capacity from 30,000 up to 60,000 2mL vials. The RDE Series is a sustainable and reliable solution with ultimate sample security and operational savings for every lab. Designed for daily usage, these ULT freezers recover cabinet temperature 20% aster after opening the door. A quiet sound output below 53 dBA enables the freezer to come out of the hallway and conveniently into the laboratory. Each unit meets ±10°C validation protocols at -80°C with strong peak variation and steady-state temperature variation. The natural hydrocarbon refrigerants reduce system operating stresses promoting outstanding reliability and worry-free sample protection.

The H-drive Information Center (HIC) combines easy to read temperature with simple capacitive touch buttons in a 5.6” display. All models contain five inner doors allowing for easy sample access without exposing greater freezer content to ambient conditions. Improved customer convenience with new ergonomically designed handle, high contrast eye-level display, and comfortable easy-access shelf locations. Compatible with most racking systems including a full range of Thermo Scientific racks for boxes, microplates, Thermo Scientific Matrix and Nunc CryoBank tubes.
