Programmable freezers

Our range of controlled rate freezers provides reliable solutions with a precise environment that can lead to better yields and better results. Our freezers come in a variety of sizes whether you need to freeze one straw or 8,000 vials.

  • Improved cell viability – precise profile freezing
  • Traceability -compliant recording of freezing run
  • Repeatability -user definable freezing profiles
  • High throughput for larger  sample numbers – our extra large freezers have a large chamber, with racking system

 

Benchtop incubators

The Planer benchtop incubator BT37 provides an unparalleled uniformity of environment, in terms of temperature and CO2 levels to help you improve your success rates..

  • Best in class in vitro environment, with rapid gas and temperature recovery times
  • Ensures optimal growth conditions with chamber uniformity of +/- 0.2 across a petri dish
  • Humidity – users have the option whether to use with or without humidity
  • Sample protection  - built-in battery back-up

 

Alarms and monitoring systems

WithPlaneralarms and monitoring systems, you can relax, knowing that you will be alerted should there be an important change in environment. Laboratory equipment, whether it is from Planer or another manufacturer, can be easily integrated with our monitoring and alarm systems.

  • Assists compliance with full audit trails and granular alarm reporting
  • Easy to install, using either wireless or wired sensors
  • Flexible. You choose how you wish to be alerted – either on your phone, smartphone, tablet or desktop. The choice is yours.

 

Sample tracking software

Having an effective inventory system to keep track of your frozen samples is essential. Pro-Curo software, offered by Planer, is a simple, off the shelf solution that can be quickly adapted to needs of your laboratory. With around the clock telephone support, line, online videos and the facility to import existing sample data you can quickly get the system up and running to manage your projects.

    A new paper on best practices for cryopreserving, thawing, recovering, and assessing cells

    During the past half-century, the fundamentals of the science of cryobiology have evolved to the point where low temperatures are now used extensively as a means to protect and preserve biological systems during enforced periods of ischemia and hypoxia. In practice, preservation is achieved using either hypothermia without freezing or cryopreservation in which the aqueous system sustains a physical phase
