Overview
  • CoolBox ice-free systems are bench top cooling workstations that provide sample cooling or freezing without ice, electricity or batteries
  • CoolBox systems are versatile and accommodate a variety of sample formats and temperatures
  • The modular design enables the use of CoolRack thermo-conductive sample modules to hold microfuge tubes, cryogenic vials, PCR tubes or plates, and more
Key Features
Secure sample preparation
  • Operates without ice, batteries or electricity
  • Keeps samples cold at a uniform 0.5 to 4.0°C for up to 16 hours
  • Keeps samples frozen (<0°C) for up to 8 hours
  • The built-in 1-8ºC temperature indicator provides visual assurance of operational temperature while working
Broad compatibility
  • Versatile: accommodates most CoolRack modules
  • Small footprint ideal for use in the hood especially in keeping temperature sensitive solutions cold
  • To extend the cooling/freezing duration, keep an additional XT Cooling/Freezing Core in the freezer and replace the cartridge as needed
How it works: ease of use
  • Freeze the XT Cooling/Freezing Core in -20°C freezer
  • Place frozen core in base/holder
  • Rest CoolRack module on cartridge
  • Module will equilibrate and maintain temperature via thermo-conductivity
  • To extend the cooling/freezing duration, keep an additional XT Cooling/Freezing Core in the freezer and replace the core as needed
  • Dry ice may be used in place of the cores to create a compact snap freezing workstation
