    The Industry's Safest, Most Energy Efficient Ultra-Low Storage Solution for High Value Biologicals.

    The 18.3 cu.ft. V.I.P. insulated MDF-U500VXC includes integrated LCD performance monitor and digital controller for comprehensive system management, data logging, remote communications, alarms, predictive performance and validation. Maintenance free, filterless design.

    The Panasonic Twin Guard Series satisfies an industry demand for safe, long-term storage for the most high-valued materials. Two, independent refrigeration systems, combined with optional liquid nitrogen or liquid CO2 back-up systems, offer a circle of protection unmatched in the marketplace. Developed for use with conventional inventory racks and boxes, the Twin Guard Series is ideal for storage of sensitive stem cells, embryos, cell lines, and other rare specimens.

    Twin Guard Series -86 DualCool Refrigeration System

    The Twin Guard Series Ultra-Low Freezer avoids conventional cascade refrigeration technology by using two completely independent one-compressor, autocascade cooling systems, each capable of maintaining ultra-low temperatures.

    • Each refrigeration circuit includes a closed-loop cold-wall evaporator configured in parallel to the other.
    • Independent evaporators and cooling fans assure back-up status at all times, eliminating system failure due to sub-component failure in conventional cascade systems configured of mutually dependent high- and low-stage systems.
    • Either circuit will maintain -65 deg C. In the unlikely event of a compressor failure in one system, the remaining system will automatically maintain a minimum of -65 deg C for an indefinite period.
    • A unique EcoMode deploys both systems in overlapping cycles to maintain -86 deg C and to reduce energy consumption by as much as 15%.
    • Evaporator coils embedded in the patented, high-tech, Panasonic V.I.P. PLUS vacuum-insulated thin-wall cabinet are strategically oriented to deliver the best temperature uniformity at all shelf levels, top-to-bottom and front-to-back.
    • New Panasonic designed Cool Safe refrigeration compressors feature innovative refrigerant feedback processes to reduce compressor temperature, thereby extending compressor life and minimizing heat output.
    • In the event of a facility power failure with optional CO2 or LN2 backup system installed, the freezer will maintain -65 deg C storage temperature for up to 8 hours.

    Safe & Secure Sample Management

    Panasonic's newly designed DualCool System ensures safe storage of valuable biological samples. Two individually-controlled compressors provide a reliable -86 deg C ultra-low temperature environment. In the unusual case of an unexpected failure in one of cooling circuits, the other compressor secures the sample safety, preventing any damage.

    Energy Saving ECOMode

    The Panasonic Twin Guard Series Freezer can be set for Normal or EcoMode operation, depending on ambient temperature and load. ECOMode is recommended for 90-95% of applications. Although both refrigeration systems are completely independent, EcoMode establishes an overlapping cycle to significantly reduce energy consumption while optimizing interior uniformity from top-to-bottom and front-to-back for protection of high value materials.

    Cabinet Construction

    Patented V.I.P. PLUS vacuum insulation panel cabinet construction for high insulating value and increased interior volume in the same footprint. The V.I.P. PLUS minimizes energy transfer to and from the ultra-low temperature interior. The composite construction, complete with reflective barrier film and structural closed cell foam, is used on all walls and the outer door. This advanced insulation technology offers structural stability to eliminate distortion, and inhibits moisture accumulation that can lead to icing. Aggregate insulation efficiency minimizes compressor cycle run-time to lower energy costs.

    • The high-tech, composite thin-wall cellular construction combines the vacuum panel insulation with polyurethane foam for structural stability and high insulation values to minimize energy use.
    • Easy-In/Easy-Out door latch for smooth, one-handed operation, positive seal against gasket. Key lock provision standard.
    • Universal keyed door lock offers added security.
    • The outer door closes uniformly against a multi-point gasket to form a tight seal and prevent moisture migration leading to frost or ice build-up.
    • The interior inventory system is based on a center shelf and two latching insulated inner doors designed for one-handed operation. Inner doors minimize exposure during routine door openings.
    • The two primary compartments can be sub-divided by adjustable shelves to accommodate standard stainless steel inventory racks for 2" or 3" boxes.
    • Rounded Interior corners enhance temperature uniformity and simply cleaning and decontamination when required.

    Intelligent LCD Control, Alarm and Monitoring

    The Twin Guard Series MDF-U500VXC is managed by an integrated microprocessor controller with LCD information center to simplify all freezer functions. Uniform ultralow temperature is achieved through a combination of performance systems supervised by the controller complete with alarm, programming and diagnostic protocols.

    • The control panel is center mounted in the outer door for easy, eye-level access.
    • Control and information center includes an intuitive popup menu, high resolution LCD for inputs, outputs and performance at-a-glance.
    • Multi-point data logging offers a graphical display for temperature verification at-a-glance.
    • Precise logic systems control and adjust to temperature setpoints and alarm parameters.
    • Setpoint, alarm and programmable inputs are established through pop-up menus and function keys.
    • Standard parameters are factory-set for quick start-up, and all parameters can be changed as required.
    • Logged parameters can be exported to remote databases, off-site alarm or data capture systems through optional communications board module for compliance monitoring.
    • A remote alarm terminal mounted at the side of the cabinet can be connected to an external alarm system. An optional PC interface permits remote transmission.
    • Tactile feedback, touch pad data shift and entry keys simplify operation. All setpoint and alarm functions are entered through an intuitive keypad with visual prompts.
    • Both refrigeration systems, including compressors and fan motors are background monitored for performance.
    • Out-of-compliance notifications and warnings are automatically displayed with audible warnings when necessary.

    Green Design and Performance

    Because modern laboratories are energy-intensive, Panasonic has developed a corporate-wide energy savings and environmental impact approach to new product development. The Twin Guard Series ultra-low freezer offers significant benefits through a balance of refrigeration power, cabinet construction and intelligent control over all functions.

    • The Twin Guard Series is designed to support LEED certification associated with the U.S. Green Building Council recommendations.
    • Components are compliant with RoHS directives on the use of hazardous materials in electrical and electronic equipment.
    • The Panasonic V.I.P. Plus vacuum insulated panel cabinet design offers high-density storage in a minimal footprint, optimizing available laboratory space and storage volume efficiencies, as well as reducing energy consumption.
    • Nose reduction and operating cost efficiencies are integrated into the refrigeration system.
    • Heat output is limited to minimize the impact on facility HVAC demands.
    • A microprocessor controller oversees the refrigeration system to regulate cooling cycle on/off times, reducing energy consumption in normal and EcoMode operating. EcoMode is selectable through the LCD controller by the end user and is recommended in most applications.
