    • Centralized information center, including microprocessor control and monitoring system, ensures all controls and displays are easy to reach and read—knee level on the 3 cu. ft. models.

    • Choice of CO2 or LN2 safety back-up systems offer additional sample protection in the event of a power or mechanical failure.
    • 5 in. (127mm) foamed-in-place, polyurethane insulation reduces power consumption and maintains temperature setpoint.
    • Triple-point door gasket provides longer holding time in the event of a door opening.
    • Rugged, heavy gauge, cold-rolled steel cabinets are finished with powder-coat paint for a uniform exterior that resists chipping and rust.
    • 1 in. (25mm) access ports allow for the use of inexpedient probes or instrumentation.
