Purchase a new laboratory medical refrigerator Jan 05, 2022

Pharmacies, hospitals, and laboratories rely on cold storage devices to protect drugs and vaccines. These devices create the best conditions for prolonging the shelf life of these beneficial drugs. Medical institutions are facing increasing pressure to ensure consistent and reliable refrigeration to store temperature-sensitive drugs, vaccines, reagents, and patient samples. Unfortunately, some clinics try to save money by buying home freezers or refrigerators. When refrigerators used in clinical applications cannot provide a safe storage environment, it will have a major impact.


Medical-grade refrigerators (also called special refrigerators) are specially designed to store vaccines and are the preferred type. These units have microprocessor-based control for a more precise temperature range, and fans that provide forced air circulation to limit cold/hot spots and promote a more uniform temperature throughout the storage box.


Laboratory Refrigerator

The most basic type of medical refrigerator is called laboratory refrigerator for short. They use precise digital displays to display the temperature. They are easy to clean, equipped with alarms and locks, and are ideal for storing or cooling medical tools and samples.


How to choose a medical refrigerator

Temperature requirement

First, understand the ideal temperature range for the items you are going to store. Different samples, vaccines and equipment require different temperatures. The smaller the possible temperature difference, the more stable the refrigerator temperature control.


Storage design

Another important consideration for Temperature Controlled Medicine Storage Refrigerator is storage design. For example, if you are storing small samples, you need a different design than storing large containers. Organization is the key, as well as the uniform temperature throughout the storage process.


Temperature monitor

One of the most important things a medical refrigerator does is to accurately track the internal temperature.

Temperature readings need to be accurate at all times. The thermometer should display the internal temperature, not just the temperature set by the staff. Make sure that the thermometer is properly calibrated.

You also need a data logger compatible with the refrigerator to record temperature readings. In this way, you don't have to rely on staff to record the temperature.
