CoolBox™ Benchtop Cooling and Freezing Systems

CoolBox ice-free benchtop cooling systems provide sample cooling or freezing without ice, electricity, or batteries. The reusable internal cooling or freezing cartridges provide hours of 0.5°C to 4.0°C cooling or -20°C to 0°C freezing. CoolBox systems may also be used with dry ice to create a compact portable, snap-freezing workstation for bacteria, virus, and proteins. CoolBox systems accommodate a variety of thermo-conductive CoolRack® and CoolSink® sample modules for microfuge tubes, cryogenic vials, PCR tubes and plates, assay plates, and more.
