Refrigeration is a key process in clinical trials and medical tests. Effective cooling is commonly provided by laboratory refrigerators which are designed to store blood plasma and other samples such as vaccines or pharmaceutical supplies and temperature controlled levels.

Some laboratory refrigerators are suitable for storing additional laboratory equipment and are large enough to contain samples which can easily be categorised for easy organisation of tests. Some fridges are designed to fit underneath work surfaces, whilst others stand tall and are useful up against a blank wall.

Capricorn supplies a range of LEC laboratory fridges and freezers and combination fridge/freezers. Most of our refrigerators have the following features:

  • Maintain internal air temperature between +2°C to +8°C
  • Lockable doors with two keys for product security (07 models only)
  • 'Spark-Free' interiors reduce risk of internal explosion
  • Stainless steel interior and lockable castors for easy positioning on LR1607
  • CFC free refrigeration system and insulation OPTIONS
  • Mains failure alarm (will increase in height by 60mm)

We also supply a range of pharmacy refrigeration units which demand even more accurate control. In addition, these fridges automatically defrost to ensure the drugs stored do not lose temperature during a defrost period.

Finally, our ranges of fridges are fully lockable to prevent theft.

Our pharmacy specific fridges have the following features:

  • Glass or solid door with internal fluorescent illumination
  • Maintains internal air temperature between +2ºC and +8ºC
  • Lockable door, 2 keys for security
  • External digital temperature display with MAX/MIN memory for continuous monitoring
  • Reversible doors on all models except the PE/PG1607
  • Forced-air cooling for temperature stability and rapid temperature recovery after door openings
  • Audio/visual alarm signal on temperature deviation, with remote alarm terminals providing mains failure alarm signal
  • CFC free refrigeration system and insulation
  • Stainless steel interior and lockable castors for easy positioning on PG1607 as standard.

When choosing the right laboratory equipment such as fridges and freezers, chamber capacity and temperature range are important specifications to consider. Some laboratory refrigerators include additional instrumentation for monitoring and managing temperatures for specific experiments and medical tests. Other laboratory fridges and freezers come equipped with built in alarm systems just in case the unit fails or lockable doors to prevent theft or unauthorised access.
