    Cabinet Construction

    The cabinet features a patented Panasonic V.I.P. vacuum insulated panel design which optimizes interior volume in the smallest footprint possible. 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.

    • 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. Door gaskets are multipoint compression for a long-lasting, tight seal around the periphery of the cabinet thermal break.
    • An Easy-In/Easy-Out outer door latch permits one-handed operation.
    • A locking provision is designed for use with a conventional padlock.
    • The interior inventory system is based on a center shelf and two latching insulated inner doors designed for one-handed operation.
    • Insulated inner doors are steel-framed, high-impact plastic with foamed-in-place insulation and minimize exposure during routine door openings.
    • Dual inner door configuration, standard, with optional half-inner door accessories available for field-installation. For a four-door configuration order two sets of half inner doors.
    • A universal keyed door lock prevents the outer door from opening.
    • The two primary compartments can be sub-divided by adjustable shelves to accommodate standard stainless steel inventory racks for 2" or 3" boxes. Shelf brackets are incrementally adjustable.
    • Rounded interior corners enhance temperature uniformity and simply cleaning and decontamination when required.
    • Seismic restraints are included to meet local codes.
    • Multiple access ports permit use of back-up injection tubes, probes, leads or instrumentation.

    Patented V.I.P. Insulation

    The Panasonic Patented V.I.P. Vacuum Insulation Panel thin-wall composite is a high-efficiency design that yields more interior storage volume in a conventional freezer footprint. The V.I.P. 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.

    Inner Door Options

    The center shelf forms the base of a convenient and flexible inventory system using conventional racks with boxes, microplates or other storage protocols. Stainless steel shelf and insulated inner-door combinations create choices of interior compartments that can be arranged for long-term, low access biologicals or short-term, frequently accessed material.

    • Easy-In / Easy Out Panasonic Eagle inner door latches feature ergonomic design to seal firmly against the cabinet with one hand.
    • High strength, insulated inner doors help minimize change in interior temperatures during routine door openings.
    • Additional half-door configuration permit additional inner door orientations. Half doors are available in pairs only.

    CFC Free Refrigerants

    Panasonic was the first ultra-low freezer manufacturer to employ non-HCFC R508 low-stage refrigerant, now recognized as today's industry standard and widely available. This non-proprietary refrigerant is available to refrigeration service professionals on the open market. The high stage refrigeration system is available to refrigeration professionals on the open market as well.

    Panasonic V.I.P. Green Initiative Program

    Panasonic is conscious of the need to protect our environment and conserve energy.

    RoHS Compliance

    In 2006, RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) legislation (EU Directive 2003/95/EU) became effective. RoHS relates to the restriction of hazardous substances and reductions in environmental pollution.

    Through RoHS legislation the EU and other participating countries are banning toxic substances in electrical equipment such as lead, cadmium, mercury, chromium 6+, PBB and PBDE.

    While compliance with this legislation has posed a significant challenge for Panasonic, all Panasonic ultra-low freezers and components are now 100% compliant to RoHS standards.

    Electrical Standards

    All Panasonic products including ultra-low temperature freezers are tested and certified by an NRTL (National Recognized Testing Laboratory) to assure compliance with US and International standards for electrical safety prescribed in 29 CFR 1910.7( c ).

    Noise Reduction

    Ultra-low freezers are often located within research and hospital laboratories or production facilities. Users prefer close proximity for easy access to valuable stored products.

    If operating noise from refrigeration compressors is excessive, and/or compounded by installation of multiple freezers in adjacent locations, the working environment is severely compromised.

    Panasonic has included advanced noise abatement in all contemporary ultra-low freezers and noise reduction levels are well below those of competitive freezers.

    Inventory Management

    The concept of High Density Storage is enabled by advances in Panasonic Cool Safe compressor design. The cost per 2" box of interior storage space is significantly lower in a Panasonic ultra-low freezer, generating immediate return on investment based on first costs, operating costs and maintenance costs over time.

    Additionally, the placement of evaporator surfaces within the cabinet walls achieve exceptional documented ultra-low temperature uniformity, thereby permitting investigators more freedom in placing valuable cell lines and biologicals within the interior cabinet, and assuring uniform cell viability when harvesting products from the ultra-low archive.

    Because benefits of the Panasonic Cool Safe compressor design extend to evaporator tubing surrounding the interior chamber, and the interior chamber is part of the thin-wall composite based on the patented V.I.P. vacuum insulation panel cabinet, Panasonic can offer more usable storage volume within the same sq.ft. of floor space than competitive models.
