2-8°C Constant Temperature Refrigerators (Vaccine Storage)
Constant temperature refrigerators are guaranteed to maintain the USP-quality storage conditions specified for 2-8 degree Celsius refrigerators. These models are factory set to 5°C, and the temperature of the air inside the chamber does not get colder than 2°C or warmer than 8°C. They stand alone among scientific refrigerators in this regard, because most others have air temperatures that vary from 0-10°C during the refrigeration cycle. Such temperature swings are not acceptable when storing small volumes of liquid (vaccines, insulin, and similar pharmaceuticals) because the thermal weight of the material is too small to dampen the effect of wide temperature variations.
Constant Temperature Refrigerators were developed to meet the need for 2-8°C storage. They can be mapped with temperature sensors throughout and will meet the USP validation requirements (with ambient room temperatures of 60-80°C). They are available in 7 sizes, designed to fit through standard door frames. Each has a microprocessor control with digital temperature display for temperature reliability.
