Safe and Reliable Vaccine Storage with Haier Ultra Low Temperature Freezers

14 Dec 2020

A vaccine is a biological substance which becomes less effective or in a worst-case scenario, completely destroyed when the recommended storage temperatures are not strictly adhered to. Therefore, the safe and reliable cold storage of vaccines, right up to when it is administered to the patient is critical. 

The Haier Biomedical Under-bench 100L ULT freezer is an ideal choice in ensuring an essential part of the ‘cold chain’ is adhered to with the added peace of mind of a dedicated purpose-built laboratory ultra-low temperature freezer.

The Haier Biomedical Under-bench 100L ULT freezer is also an ideal choice for industries in research, hospitals, disease prevention & control centres, blood stations, scientific research institutes, electronics, chemical enterprise laboratories and biomedical engineering research institutes. 


With a capacity of 100L, this freezer can store up to 6000 samples. With an overall height of 810mm the unit will fit under most laboratory benchtops for convenient and economical use of space. Additionally, two freezers can be stacked on top of each other eliminating the need for extra laboratory floor space. 

With an impressive low overall power consumption of only 5.5 kWh/day, it helps keep your laboratory running costs at a minimum. This is achieved by the use of an efficient hydrocarbon compressor, multi-layered seals and a dual door design to eliminate cold energy losses when opening and closing the freezer compartment.

A clever noise reduction cabinet and system design emits a low sound level of only 46.8dB thus reducing overall noise emissions and ensuring a comfortable working environment within your laboratory. The added security of an integrated keyed locking mechanism with the provision of an addition padlock ensures your valuable samples are kept safe.

Connectivity is provided by a USB interface for access to historical data from the inbuilt sensors. A remote alarm port and an RS-485 interface facilitates easy connection to your laboratory management system, alerting the laboratory manager should there be a fault.

We have more models available in various capacities, performance and technological features.

Macherey-Nagel offers a solution for PFAS analysis from drinking water.

25 Nov 2020

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are used for many daily applications e.g. food packaging and textile coating because of their non-sticky properties. Most PFAS are hazardous substances which need to be monitored globally. Due to their increasing appearance in the environment new product solutions are of great demand. CHROMABOND PFAS provides such a solution for the enrichment of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from water.

In contrast to other products, this special phase enables users to enrich not only acidic PFAS but also various other PFAS substance classes (alcohols, sulfonamides, ethers) with high recovery rates in one application. This is possible due to the different retention mechanisms of the sorbents (interactions according to EPA method 537.1 and 533, DIN 38407-42).

The application note Solid phase extraction of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from drinking water shows the successful sample preparation (solid phase extraction) of PFAS from drinking water. The subsequent analysis was performed by NUCLEOSHELL RP 18plus HPLC column.

When conducting PFAS analysis, it is crucial to select the right vials and closures for this application. Adsorption effects of glass as well as possible contamination of the sample by particles from the septa, especially from the PTFE lamination, may put your analysis results at risk.
