The VIA Freeze Research is a single Stirling engine powered system with one SBS plate; numerous sample formats are available, with a capacity of either 48 x 2.0ml standard cryovials (suggested filling of 1.0ml) or 10-20ml of fluid in a cryobag. This unit is ideal either as a portable device or in a laboratory setting and bears all the typical benefits of the VIA Freeze range. 
A Validated Approach 
The onboard secure data logging system and fully featured protocol editor offers programmable cooling protocols, user access control, data logging, process validation and report generation. The cleanable touch screen interface allows easy system control and works with typical laboratory gloves. A standard mouse and keyboard can also be used, as can secure access from a remote computer via standard web browsers. 
Minimal Contamination 
Designed to be clean room compatible, the VIA Freeze systems have minimal dirt traps, a seamless sample area, magnetically mounted autoclavable sample holders and may be cleaned using standard wipes. Contamination and sterility issues found in liquid nitrogen based systems are completely avoided. 
Safe & Cost Effective 
Since no liquid nitrogen is used there is no O2 depletion safety risk. This obviates the need for any O2 depletion safety systems and their associated costs especially when required within a clean room environment. Running costs are expected to be 1% of liquid nitrogen controlled systems and can negate the need for liquid nitrogen infrastructure altogether, offering substantial set-up cost savings.
