Part of the Standard Performance (STP) family, Thermo Scientific™ Forma™ FDE Series ultra-low temperature freezers, powered by H-drive, feature four upright models, maximizing storage capacity from 30,000 up to 60,000 2 mL vials. The FDE series is a sustainable and reliable solution with ultimate sample security and operational savings for every lab.
Powered by H-drive's hydrocarbon technology, these systems save up to 25% in energy usage and heat rejection over conventional refrigerant ultra-low freezers1
Designed for daily usage, recovers cabinet temperature 20% faster after opening the door.2
A quiet sound output below 53 dBA, enables the freezer to come out of the hallway and into the lab
Meets +/-10°C validation protocols at -80°C with strong peak variation and steady-state temperature variation
Natural hydrocarbon refrigerants reduce system operating stresses promoting outstanding reliability and worry-free sample protection
The H-drive Information Center (HIC) combines easy to read temperature with simple capacitive touch buttons in a 5.6” display
Four capacities (300, 400, 500 and 600 2-inch box) to accommodate a variety of storage needs and lab footprint specifications
All models contain four inner doors allowing for easy sample access without exposing greater freezer content to ambient conditions
Improved customer convenience with new ergonomically designed handle, high contrast eye-level display, and comfortable easy-access shelf locations.
Compatible with most racking systems including a full range of Thermo Scientific™ racks for boxes, microplates, Thermo Scientific™ Matrix™ and Nunc CryoBank™ tubes
Security features including alarm settings and padlock-compatible doors
Manufactured in an award-winning, zero-waste to landfill facility
Lower HVAC costs as a result of less heat emission into the environment
Natural refrigerants and water-blown foam insulation, making the Series compliant with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP), the European Union’s F-Gas and other sustainability standards
Internal data comparing 11.2 kWh/day to UXF600 = 14.9 kWh/day. Data on file.
Typical freezer test data based on internal testing in ambient temperature at 20°C; Typical standard validation protocol of +/-10°C.
