Thermo Scientific Jewett High-Performance Lab Refrigerators and Freezers Provide Worry-free Operation

MILFORD, Mass. (23 April 2010) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced the latest additions to the Thermo Scientific Jewett laboratory refrigerator and freezer range, specifically designed to store high value, critical samples, reagents, vaccines, blood and plasma. The new high-performance Jewett® collection incorporates 24 models ranging from the 4.9 cu ft under counter models, through to 51.1 cu ft upright models, providing researchers with a unit for a variety of blood bank, plasma, pharmacy and general applications. The Jewett product family also offers features specially designed blood bank and plasma storage such as built in chart recorders, locking self-closing doors, and sliding stainless steel drawers.

The new high-performance models include microprocessor control that gives the user precise temperature regulation and set-point security, enabling researchers to program and lock set temperatures to prevent unauthorized adjustments. The Thermo Scientific Jewett range has been designed to not only preserve the integrity of high value samples but also be easy to use. The adjustable shelves are easily removed for effective cleaning to help prevent contamination, while the ergonomic handle and self-closing doors enable ease and efficiency when accessing samples. Further valuable features include powerful industrial grade compressors and positive, forced-air circulation, which together ensure a rapid return to the set temperature even with frequent freezer access. All models are equipped visual and audible alarms, backed up by battery, to alert the user of any fall in temperature below desired setting.

Thermo Scientific Jewett high-performance models are UL and CE listed, and the blood bank refrigerators have been designed to the highest standards for blood storage (AABB, ANRC, FDA), providing users with the peace of mind of third party validation.
