Think Strategically and Dramatically Lower the Total Cost of Ultra-Low Temperature Storage
What is Your Compressor-Based ULT Freezer Really Costing Your Organization?
The total cost of owning an ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezer for your biotech research or biopharma lab is the sum of the purchase price, plus costs for energy, cooling, floor space and the usual compressor replacement. Your ULT freezer cost goes beyond the base price of the freezer. Did you know that initial purchase price accounts for less than 30% of the total cost of owning a typical ULT freezer? What about the other 70%+? Have you considered what your ULT freezers are costing you in floor space, HVAC, and compressor replacement parts? With the Stirling Ultracold SU780XLE, you will end up saving large amounts of money. Even though our initial cost can be higher than a traditional compressor-based unit, you will see the savings in all the other benefits it provides. In fact, if you were to remove the initial cost of the standard compressor-based freezer completely, in other words, if the freezer was free, our unit would often still be cheaper on a total lifetime cost basis.
Stirling Ultracold is a HUBZone-certified business, a federal classification, and we are the only ULT manufacturer to have received this certification. We create jobs and opportunity in a historically underserved part of the country. Many organizations track their diversity spend metrics – if your organization does we can help you meet your goals.
Increased Storage Density and the Financial Impact
When it comes to building out your facility and looking to upgrade the number of freezers without redesigning the whole laboratory, Stirling Ultracold offers a competitive solution. Our SU780XLE has a much smaller physical footprint while providing the same storage capacity as our competitors. You can also place the SU780XLE directly against the wall and there is a much smaller offset between freezers to reduce your space utilization even further. Your facility can save money by opting to use a higher sample density freezer like our upright model. In the arrangement shown below, 15 Stirling XLE freezers can store 1,200-2,200 more 2-inch sample boxes in the same space as 13 competitive models. That’s more efficient use of valuable laboratory floor space!
