    Thermo Scientific Forma 88000 Series -86°C ultra-low temperature freezers feature a range of functionality including:

    • More Samples, Less Freezer Footprint: Choice of five capacities maximize sample storage while minimizing the freezer's physical space inside the lab
    • Choice of Refrigeration: For the strictest tolerances, the high-performance mode provides the tightest temperature uniformity and peak variation†—for most applications, energy-savings mode offers excellent temperature control, plus up to 15% savings on energy usage compared to high performance mode
    • New Cabinet + Vacuum Insulation Panel Technology: increases the internal capacity of 2 inch vials over previous generation freezers—gain up to 76% more capacity in the same footprint with 1mL CryoBank tubes†
    • Sample Storage Capacity: Five sizes accommodates any size lab, featuring the industry's leading capacity per footprint specifications‡
    • Innovative, touch-screen user interface: Monitor the freezer's health 24/7 and access a detailed event log—simply touch the heart icon on the main screen to see freezer's temperature, and access settings and operating parameters
    • Built-in USB port: Obtain a record, simply download a report of the current event log to a portable drive
    • Environmentally-friendly, CFC/HCFC free refrigerants
    • NEW refrigeration system: with high-efficiency compressors for outstanding performance and reliability
    • Brazed plate heat exchanger for more efficient heat transfer—induction brazed joints to reduce leak potential and improve reliability
    • Power management system: protects against a wide range of voltage variation and is easily accessible through the touch-screen display
    • Remote alarm contacts: with 4-20 milliamp output compatible with external alarm and monitoring systems
    • Two rear access, 1-inch (25mm) ports: allow for the use of inexpedient probes or instrumentation
    • On-board data storage: Store up to 15 years worth of temperature and event data on our on-board computer
    • Easily exchange data: Use the new USB port to download freezer temperature and event log data, or freezer settings from one freezer to another
    • Easy-to-remove, washable filter: Provides protection against dust on the condenser, which can cause reduced refrigeration performance and increased risk to samples
    • NEW reinforced shelves: Store up to 278 lbs. of samples (depending on freezer model) on the reinforced, stainless steel shelving
    • NEW outer door gaskets: 4x7 heated gasket provides four touchpoints of security and seven zones of protection, maximizing cabinet temperature and eliminating frost build-up
    • NEW inner doors: Five polystyrene insulated inner doors help maintain cabinet temperature during openings and feature embedded rare earth magnets, eliminating exposed latches or magnets
    • Several optional features including LN2 and CO2 back-up system, chart recorder, stainless steel inventory racking solutions, and hands-free locking option
