Planer Kryo 560 Controlled Rate Freezer


The Kryo 560 is a medium sized controlled rate freezer with sample capacity sufficient for a busy laboratory.

Simple to program and easy to operate.

This rugged and reliable controlled rate freezer has  a top opening chamber, a lid that is warmed to prevent freezing shut at cryogenic temperatures plus the unique forced laminar flow pattern ensuring excellent temperature control in all phases of the protocol. Planer’s MRV Controller system offers multiple protocol availability.

The -180ºC end temperature ensures sample integrity during transfer to storage at liquid nitrogen temperatures whilst the flexibility of the system, including protocol stage transition based on sample or chamber temperature or time, is ideal for the more demanding protocols associated with advanced cryo-preservation techniques.
