Ultra-low Temperature Freezers Industry Background  

Freezers were available as the ice-cube compartment within the refrigerator unit until the Second World War. ULTF industry can be traced back to 1940’s with the introduction of separate freezers in the market. Mass production of these freezers for domestic use began after the Second World War. In 1968, companies such as ScienTemp began manufacturing laboratory freezer. SANYO, in 1987, developed the MDF-2135, their first ultra-low temperature freezer, capable of achieving temperatures of -135°C. Further in 1997, the company introduced the ULT freezer MDFU70V, world’s first vacuum-insulated freezer, that operated at -86 °C. In 2001, New Brunswick Scientific (NBS), developed Innova Model U101, being pioneer in upright and personal-sized ULT freezer that fits under or on the bench. This model was introduced to render scientists the convenience and security of keeping samples directly in the labs. The U101 used vacuum insulation panel technology to maximize internal storage without hampering external dimensions.
 

Later in 2010, SANYO introduced safest ULT freezer equipped with -86° Dual Cool technology that evaded conservative cascade refrigeration technology by using two completely independent auto cascade cooling systems and one-compressor, each capable of maintaining ultra-low temperatures. Growing demand for cryopreservation solutions following scientific and medical advances, such as increased use of cryopreserved stem cells in transplants and oocytes in IVF has stimulated the ultra-low temperature business growth. Increasing focus of companies on development of advanced and superior quality ultra-low temperature freezers will further escalate industry growth during the forthcoming years.
