Refrigerators and Freezers

More and more clinical laboratories are taking advantage of purpose-designed and built, medical-grade refrigeration technology. While there are a wide range of clinical capacities and locations that require durable and reliable refrigerated storage, it is the advanced features of medical-grade devices that are so appealing to laboratory directors and the several pathology and laboratory disciplines that depend on precise environmental storage conditions. Furthermore, the need for deep freezing has expanded in recent years and these devices require the same strict levels of temperature control and metrics reporting as refrigerators.

The number of laboratories making exclusive use of medical-grade units continues to grow, and this concept combined with strong user satisfaction makes a strong argument for the acquisition of these essential devices.

A healthy portion (57%) of facilities planning to adopt new refrigeration systems will do so within the next 2 years.

Helmer and Thermo Fisher enjoy substantial representation in medical laboratories, while this market remains busy with Cardinal Health, Follett, and others also well used.
