PHCbi Biomedical Preservation Solutions
Secure biomedical preservation of samples, vaccines and drugs in laboratories, clinics and hospitals demands absolute reliability, precise temperature control, energy efficiency and regulatory compliance. PHCEU meets all these demands and more with a range of PHCbi branded Ultra Low Temperature (-150oC) Freezers, Biomedical Freezers, MPR series Pharmaceutical Refrigerators, MBR Blood Bank Refrigerators and Liquid Nitrogen Cryopreservation cabinets.
The PHCbi range of Biomedical Preservation solutions encompasses six main product lines:
Cryogenic ULT Freezers
These systems operate at between -152°C and -86°C for long term storage of sensitive, high value samples. The PHCbi Cryogenic ULT Freezer range includes two products, the MDF-1156-PE with a storage capacity of 128 liters and the MDF-C2156VAN-PE (231 liters). Both incorporate new VIP PLUS insulation and double door gaskets with special foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation material for maximum cabinet protection. They share features such as high performance, quiet-running, advanced controls, high temperature warning systems, LED digital display and flat key data entry for accurate temperature setting, confirmation and operation.
Both employ specially designed cascade refrigeration system to achieve ultra-low temperature of -152ºC, incorporating highly efficient compressors for durable, stable and energy-efficient cooling and liquid nitrogen back-up systems, with the MDF-C2156VAN also using a N2 back-up system and LCD control panel.
TwinGuard ULT Freezers
PHCbi TwinGuard ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezers operate at between -70°C and -86°C for safe, long-term storage of biomedical samples and other high-value materials. These solutions are offered in two ranges; the VIP ECO upright format MDF-DU302VX-PE, MDF-DU502VX-PE and MDF-DU702VX-PE and the chest format MDF-DC500VX-PE and MDF-DC700VX-PE.
All are based on VIP PLUS vacuum insulation and TwinGuard dual independent refrigeration systems, combined with optional liquid nitrogen or liquid CO2 back-up system to offer unrivalled sample protection and security.
The upright format range offers multiple shelf configurations for flexible storage options, along with the intelligent interface color LCD touch panel for full user control, even with gloved hands. All TwinGuard ULT freezers incorporate USB port for transfer of logged data to PC.
Operating between -20°C and -40°C, these freezers are suited for storage of vaccines, enzymes and diagnostic samples, as well as temperature and aging tests. These products include the chest format MDF-137-PE (138 liter storage capacity), MDF-237-PE (221L) and MDF-437-PE (425L) along with the upright format MDF-U731M-PE (690L) and ECO range MDF-MU300H-PE (274L) and MDF-MU500H-PE (482L). The ECO range use natural (HC) refrigerants and inverter compressors to minimize energy consumption, reduce environmental impact and minimize running costs.
MPR Pharmaceutical Refrigerators
PHCbi MPR Pharmaceutical Refrigerators offer uniform storage temperature for demanding pharmaceutical, medicinal, vaccine, and other temperature-sensitive applications in the chilled/cold range at between 2oC and 23oC.
These solutions include 14 products in three ranges:
