Product Information

When it comes to maximizing sample storage capacity, Eppendorf Innova ULT Freezers set the standard. They take advantage of ultra-efficient, ultra-compact vacuum insulation panels which are used in combination with traditional insulation to slim down the freezer wall thickness from 130 mm to 80 mm. These models are ideal for labs short on space. Two models are offered: C585 and C760.

The Innova line is equipped with reliable heavy-duty compressors (2-stage cascade cooling system). Quick pull-down times enable fast reuse after cleaning/defrosting of the instrument. The freezers have short recovery times after opening as well as built-in voltage stabilizers to provide extra sample safety.
For even higher sample safety, the Eppendorf Innova Chest Freezers can be equipped with CO2/LN2 backup systems and a chart recorder. Temperature monitor systems can be used to monitor the freezers remotely.
