Accucold introduces a new series of ultra low temperature chest freezers designed for reliable storage at -85ºC for laboratory, life science, and other institutional settings. 

Manufactured for Accucold in Denmark by ELCOLD, model LAB8 offers 3.08 cu.ft. of storage. Extra thick 4 1/2" insulation and static manual defrost operation help to hold ultra low temperatures suitable for maintaining the integrity of biological samples, industrial materials, laboratory specimens, select vaccines, and other materials with highly specific cold storage requirements. Two inner lids offer added protection by shielding contents when the outer lid is opened. The digital microprocessor controls are mounted in the front for convenient access. This unit has a temperature range that can be set between -50 and -85ºC, with a display viewable in Celsius or Fahrenheit. The thermostat's high/low temperature alarm warns if the interior goes out of the set range. There is also an audible 9V battery-powered alarm in the rear of the unit that will sound in the event of power failure. 

We include a set of casters (two locking) for easy installation to ensure smooth mobility. The easy-grip handle is equipped with a factory-installed keyed lock for added security. We also offer this unit with a set of 6 vertical stainless steel box racks (see model LAB8R6). 

The LAB8 is UL listed for use in the US and Canada, and also meets ANSI/NSF-7. For additional low temperature choices, browse the complete Accucold lineup.
