A new series of compact refrigerators has been developed to address the need of clinical laboratories and patient care facilities for cold storage equipment that enable secure and energy-efficient storage while offering quiet operation and a small footprint. The Thermo Scientific TSG series was introduced during the 70th American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Scientific Meeting held recently in Chicago.
Powered by Phononic’s solid-state cooling technology, the new TSG refrigerators have been designed to provide uninterrupted temperature stability and cleanroom-compatible readiness for reliable storage of the most sensitive materials. With ENERGY STAR-rated performance, the TSG series refrigerators consume significantly less energy than similar models.
As with the Thermo Scientific TSX series of freezers and refrigerators, the new TSG series uses environmentally-friendly refrigerants in line with global initiatives aimed at minimising greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, the systems feature an alarm capability, notifying users of temperature fluctuations, door ajar and power failure.
The TSG series refrigerators are available in under-counter (TSG505) and countertop (TSG205) configurations to suit varying application needs. The TSG505 is designed to support third-party monitoring solutions often employed in clinical settings, whereas data logging and download capabilities on the TSG205 are easily enabled via a USB port to meet clinical record management needs.
