Cryogenic freezers provide refrigeration solutions for life science research and clinical applications that require freezing at extremely low temperatures.
Unlike ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezers and traditional lab freezers, cryogenic freezers can maintain temperatures within the cryogenic temperature range, ranging between -150°C to absolute zero. This freezing method is referred to as cryopreservation. It applies to various fields that include cryosurgery, food sciences, ecology, plant physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and cryopreservation of cells, cell cultures and organs.
Many medical applications require samples to be frozen at cryogenic temperatures, such as blood transfusions, bone marrow transplantation, artificial insemination, and in vitro fertilization. Healthcare providers have greatly benefitted from the use of cryogenic freezers.
High-performance units utilize freezing and uniform temperatures for long-term storage, offering conditions ideal for preserving valuable biological material indefinitely. These metrics preserve, rather than fatally freeze, by preventing ice crystal formation, osmotic shock, and membrane damage. This allows the sample to return to the same viable state it was in before being frozen.
However, in the case of more sensitive mammalian cells, it is sometimes necessary to use specialized media or freezing reagents that can be applied to reduce freezing damage. These reagents include various cryoprotectants, such as glycerol or dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).
Improvements in cryogenics have resulted in better survival and high-quality functionality of human tissue and cell samples, permitting their successful use in future clinical applications.
Purchasing a cryogenic freezer can be difficult, as these units are often quite expensive. However, many laboratories—small startups, growing middle market, and large enterprise companies—have started relying on leasing as a viable alternative to purchasing.
This is due to Excedr’s ability to absorb the upfront costs for you and spread them out over low, manageable, recurring payments. Read on to learn more about these freezers and the benefits of cryopreservation.
Cryogenic Freezing & the Benefits of Cryopreservation
Cryogenic freezers are relatively similar across makes and models, but can vary based on your preferred method of freezing, size of sample storage, and desired application.
To freeze samples, freezers generally employ liquid nitrogen (LN2) and other cryogenic liquids like liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) in the gas and vapor phase. However, mechanical compressors offer an economical alternative to the more costly freezing agents. Depending on your needs and field of work, you have some options.
Furthermore, cryogenic freezer design considers temperature uniformity, ergonomics, space requirements, and maneuverability, which means you should too. Consider the freezer’s configuration. Is an upright freezer optimal for your laboratory space? How about an under-counter model? Also, check whether the unit has casters for easy maneuvering and is configured to provide superior ergonomics and easy access.

Whether you’re looking to lease a cryogenic freezer, ultra-low temperature freezer, or laboratory freezer, we’ve got you covered.
Fill out our contact form online or give us a call at (510) 982-6552, and we can get you on the road to flexible financing in no time.
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
