MDF-MU500H-PE Biomedical freezer

The Panasonic new Biomedical freezer, MDF-MU500H-PE (former KM-MU49H1E),  with natural refrigerants and inverter compressors minimise energy consumption, reduce environmental impact and save money on running costs. Innovative inverter technology provides a reliable and exceptionally stable temperature for a wide range of storage applications.

The freezers provide effective storage of life-saving vaccines and samples for diagnosis in the medical field. They can also be used for storage of enzymes for genetic research, as well as culture media, reagents and samples for testing. Panasonic’s Biomedical freezers are also ideal for industrial aging and temperature tests. As a storage environment, with excellent safety and other easy-to-use features, these freezers offer unsurpassed reliability and functionality.

Panasonic Biomedical also offers the KM-MU300H-PE Biomedical Freezer, which has a capacity of 274 litres.
