Planer Kryo 360 Controlled Rate Freezer


The Kryo 360 Controlled Rate Freezer is used for pre freezing specimens before liquid nitrogen storage in applications such as:

  • In Vitro Fertilization - human and animal
  • Assisted Reproduction
  • Ovarian Tissue freezing
  • Embryo, Sperm and Oocyte freezing
  • Animal husbandry
  • Tissue preservation
  • Cell line freezing

The Kryo 360 is a medium capacity controlled rate freezer: ideal for an IVF, ART or research laboratories.

Menu driven with fast cooling rates, controlled heating and multiple safety features.

Repeatability, consistent results and data recording are available from this reliable system used to freeze biological samples prior to long term cryo storage.

The equipment has multiple safety features, has data printing via its integral printer and allows multiple protocols. Controlled freezers give consistent results with validated high post thaw viability.

Also available in a non Medical Device version
