Product Information

The Eppendorf CryoCube F570 series offers a 5-compartment lay-out and 5 inner doors for easy sample access.

The series is based on three models:
CryoCube F570: 130 mm wall (polyurethane insulation), "classic" cooling liquids, air-cooling
CryoCube F570h: 130 mm wall (polyurethane insulation and vacuum insulation panels), "green" cooling liquids (R290/ R170), air-cooling
CryoCube F570hw: 130 mm wall (polyurethane insulation and vacuum insulation panels), "green" cooling liquids (R290/ R170), water-cooling

The CryoCube F570 series has a volume of 570 L (20.1 square feet) and a temperature range from -50 °C to -86 °C.

Besides sustainability, the main focus of our freezers is on ergonomic aspects. Especially the new door handle of the CryoCube models is based on the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept: Safe grip but very light forces needed to open and close the freezer door. The interface is on eye level for easy reading of all settings. The automatic vent port enables fast re-access to your samples.

Cost of ownership
When investing in a new ULT freezer, the product price itself is only one aspect. Others include the long-term costs of power consumption and the costs of service and spare parts. Keep in mind, a high-quality ULT freezer will do its job in the lab for 10 years or more.

Sample safety
The CryoCube F570 series is equipped with reliable heavy-duty compressors (2-stage cascade cooling system). Quick pull-down times enable fast re-use after cleaning/defrosting of the instrument. The freezers have short recovery times after opening to provide extra sample safety.
Their temperature range is from -50 °C to -86 °C.
For even higher sample safety, the ULT freezers can be equipped with CO2/LN2 back-up systems and a chart recorder. Temperature monitor systems can be used to monitor the freezers remotely.

Sustainability for ULT freezers is a challenge: Maintaining extremely low temperatures of -86 °C for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week needs energy.
By following the epGreen concept, the Eppendorf freezer R&D team developed intelligent solutions where energy savings are combined with durable long-lasting product quality and ergonomic aspects. By using highly efficient technologies, the CryoCube F570h just needs 7.6 KWh/day. This future-oriented instrument class provides consumption levels which are ahead of most competitors within this volume class. The CryoCube F570h (115 V) is certified by ENERGY STAR®.

Support the epGreen initiative with your Eppendorf ULT freezer

Eppendorf Ultra-Low Temperature freezers are among the most energy-efficient in the industry, reducing energy consumption by thousands of kilowatt hours over our competition.

In 2014, the European Union announced a ban of all non-hydrocarbon-liquids (EU_517/2014) until 2020.
Hydrocarbons are also known as green or natural gases. The two major representatives are propane and ethane (known as R290 and R170). Based on IEC 60335-2-89, there are no additional safety instructions for using green gases in ULT freezers necessary.
This ban includes all cooling devices except instruments for temperatures below -50°C. Based on this exception, ULT freezers of -86°C can continue to run with HFCs. Still, it makes sense to replace the HFC cooling liquids also for ULTs as global warming needs to be slowed down.
Due to this goal, we at Eppendorf clearly plan to replace all classic cooling ULT freezers within the next years.

Remember 2008?
As being one of the very first movers for green gases at -86°C, Eppendorf has now 10 years of experience in R&D, production, logistics, and service in the field.
In 2008, the (Eppendorf) New Brunswick Premium U570h was one of the very first commercially available ULT freezers driven by green cooling liquids.

› Usage of green cooling liquids in Eppendorf ULT freezers for 10 years
› Packaging parts have increasing share of recycled origin
› Packaging is more than 99% recyclable (wood, cardboard, PE-foil)
› REACH + RoHS compliant
› ENERGY STAR® partner
› Marketing material is printed on FSC certified paper, wherever possible focus on pdf only
› Shipment by cargo ship to reduce CO2 footprint

Lost in samples? Stay organized!
Over many years, you collect hundreds and thousands of samples – samples that are the results of years of hard work – samples of high value. When storing these, it is vital to keep them safe and accessible.
Many scientists still use spreadsheets or even paper-based lists to keep track of their storage. While these solutions may work most of the time, they are susceptible to human error, damage, and misplacement.
Keep track of your samples with eLABInventory
eLABInventory is a sample management software.
