The CryoCooler is a valuable tool that helps to preserve the integrity of frozen vials of cultured cells and tissue specimens during routine handling. The CryoCooler well contains a pillow that absorbs liquid nitrogen. Once charged with liquid nitrogen, the pillow slowly releases liquid nitrogen vapor, which can keep samples in the CryoCooler's well at temperatures below -130°C for up to four hours, with the lid closed and three hours with the lid open.
The CryoCooler is very useful for preparing stored tissue for RNA isolation and for the sorting of frozen vials. It features a 6'x5" opening that easily accomodates a standard Cryogenic Storage Box.
