Medical Refrigerator Buying Guide

Sep 01, 2021
Medical refrigerators have a microprocessor-based system that can accurately measure temperature. They use digital sensors (such as thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors [RTD], and thermistors) to monitor internal temperature. These devices also have a fast temperature recovery device that can respond to temperature readings that are out of range.

A large part of the reason that distinguishes medical refrigerators or glass-door display freezers from household appliances is the guarantee of temperature stability. Many medical samples and supplies need to maintain a consistent temperature in order to stay alive. Change can mean the loss of much-needed drugs, blood donations, and destroyed products, which cost countless research, time, and money. Different medical compounds have different temperature requirements, all of which need to be monitored and adjusted. For example, in the case of vaccines, this varies from product to product. It must be maintained at +2°C from the time of manufacture to when the vaccine is used for individuals. Temperature range to +8°C. Most vaccines are considered damaged at 0°C, but because damaged or frozen vaccines may not be visually solid or change in appearance, glass-door refrigerator units must be equipped with an accurate digital thermostat to continuously monitor the internal temperature. Ideally, the refrigerator display cabinet is also equipped with a health timer that can automatically lock the device when the temperature rises or falls, above or below the set safety threshold. As far as vaccines are concerned, this will be a temperature higher than +8°C.

Characteristics of medical refrigerators:

Temperature stability, uniformity and recovery
One of the most important characteristics of medical-grade refrigerators is their ability to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the cabinet. They use a forced air circulation system specifically designed for pharmacy applications to maintain an extremely tight uniformity, usually within +/- 1.5 degrees Celsius. They can also quickly return to the set temperature after the door is opened.

Accurate temperature monitoring and alarm system
On-site temperature deviation sound and light alarm, standard remote mobile phone SMS alarm (with power failure alarm), multiple devices use one mobile phone card; all high-quality medical-grade refrigerators are equipped with door alarms, if it breaks at any time, It will sound to prevent this from happening.

Thermostat control
There is nothing worse than turning the knob of a consumer refrigerator almost one millimeter to get the temperature just right. It not only takes longer to set it at the correct temperature, but it is also more risky, because even if someone gently touches the knob, it may cause a big change in temperature. Whenever I insist on using a consumer model, setting the temperature is a nightmare.

Reliable and stable temperature for safe storage of vaccines, drugs, creams or samples. The digital display allows you to confirm the temperature without opening the door.

Promote better air flow
Compared with household appliances, medical-grade appliances are designed with better airflow. The pharmaceutical unit relies on a powerful fan forced air circulation system and air cooling vents. Their internal shelving system can also circulate air efficiently and maintain a uniform temperature. They use wire racks with perforated vents.
Other specially constructed systems include drawers with solid fronts (and wire interiors) to protect vaccines and samples from ambient temperature and promote uniform air circulation. Many medical refrigerators and freezers have alarm systems that can notify suppliers when the airlock is not sealed or the door is ajar.

Protect biological products from temperature drift caused by power failure
Even if the provider uses appropriate equipment and consistent temperature monitoring practices, a power failure can damage your vaccine supply. These interruptions may disrupt the entire vaccine supply. Most facilities should have an on-site generator to prevent transportation of their vaccine supplies to alternative storage facilities during power outages. The supplier should have enough fuel in the facility to run the generator for 72 hours.
If your healthcare facility does not have a generator, your medical refrigerator or freezer can protect your products. Most have backup batteries to prevent temperature drift. Medical refrigerators and freezers provide additional advantages because they have battery backup power and can be used in place of generators. If there is a power failure, please close the appliance door to maintain the internal temperature. Your facility should also have a second battery backup system in case the first battery fails.

Medical glass door refrigerators and freezers are the lasting investment you want. Choosing a reliable brand XCH Biomedical and all the functions required for medical equipment will give you peace of mind in the coming years.
