SANYO expands the range of dual-cooling -86ºC freezers with the launch of the extra-large capacity MDF-U700VX, an upright 728 litre model which provides maximum sample security for valuable research or clinical samples.

With two independent refrigeration systems SANYO dual-cooling freezers maintain a reliable and uniform -86ºC ultralow temperature environment. Should one cooling system suffer an unexpected failure, the other circuit will keep irreplaceable samples safely around -70ºC until service can be arranged. This, the industry’s safest freezer design, not only protects precious samples but prevents the inconvenience and expense of out-of-hours call-outs in the event of a failure of one of the refrigeration systems.

These features make the MDF-U700VX ideal for storing high-value samples in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries, stem cell research and regenerative medicine, tissue banks and blood transfusion centres, and other clinical and biomedical research facilities.

The MDF-U700VX has an extra-large capacity of 728 litres without taking up extra space, thanks to SANYO’s latest VIP Plus™ high efficiency vacuum insulation. In addition to reducing energy use, VIP Plus™ provides typically 24 per cent more storage capacity compared to a conventionally insulated freezer with the same footprint.

This latest dual-cooling unit offers SANYO’s industry-first intelligent ECO Mode, optimising compressor operation to match the freezer’s running conditions and minimise energy use. Efficient long-term operation of the freezer is facilitated by the filter-less condenser design, which eliminates the need for routine filter cleaning.

The central door-mounted LCD display panel provides intuitive programming of set points and clear confirmation of freezer status. An on-board data logging function allows the operator to easily check recent freezer performance. Other user-friendly design features include comprehensive alarms, a vacuum release port for smooth door opening, and quiet operation.

The MDF-U700VX is certified as a Class IIa Medical Device (93/42/EEC and 2007/47/EC), underlining SANYO’s commitment to the very highest standards of product design, quality and safety.
