MVE Variō™ Series

The MVE Variō™ Series is the new innovative and energy efficient alternative for ultra low temperature to cryogenic storage. The completely dry sample storage area will maintain a user-defined temperature anywhere between -20°C and -150°C. The MVE Variō Series significantly reduces the possibility of sample contamination via contact with LN2 while providing the safety margin and consistent temperature profile, even with the lid open, that is associated with LN2 based cryogenic storage. The MVE Variō Series is able to provide all of this with less than 1% of the power consumption and approximately 70% overall operating cost savings when compared to the leading mechanical freezers.

  • Approximately 70% operating cost savings compared to leading mechanical freezers (-80°C)
  • Less than 1% of the electricity consumption compared to leading mechanical freezers (-80°C)
  • Completely dry storage area
  • Consistent temperature profile, even with lid open
  • Improved processing time, minimal increase in temperature when warm samples introduced
  • No thermal load; no heat introduced into room and no additional HVAC required
  • No more expensive compressors to replace
  • Convertible asset: can be retrofitted to expand temperature range to -190
