Only through cool storage can cell lines, human, animal and plant tissue, vaccines or reference strains of micro-organisms such as bacteria, yeasts, viruses and fungi be stored over a long period of time without any problems. Thelab ULT-490 from CARLO ERBA Reagents GmbH promises comfortable and safe working as well as optimal storage of your samples.

Simple temperature regulation

Look forward to a simple solution for regulating the temperature! The temperature control works electronically and is protected against manipulation by a key system. The evenly circulating cool air is supported by a circulating air cooling system. This creates the right conditions for proper cooling of your temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals, medicines or biologicals.

A variable temperature control also protects the contents from sub-zero temperatures. All settings can be controlled via a membrane keypad even when wearing gloves. This medication refrigerator also has a temperature memory in which both minimum and maximum temperatures can be stored.

Efficient defrosting with No-Frost technology

Would you like a laboratory refrigerator that does the defrosting for you? Our service team will be happy to advise you on one of our suitable cooling systems, without obligation, in order to find the right offer for you.

Plenty of storage space for medicines & co.

What doesn’t fit can be made to fit! Adjust the space inside according to your needs using the flexible compartments. A high-quality stainless steel lining completes the interior of this model.

Low energy consumption

Some refrigerators of the series of our manufacturer CARLO ERBA Reagents GmbH come with a self-closing door and durable interior made of high-strength, plastic, which can also be locked. This way you can make sure that all contents are optimally protected against foreign influences. Minimise your power consumption by up to 60 percent: door insulation made of robust, insulating and environmentally friendly material makes it possible.

Best protection

A warning visual and acoustic alarm signal informs you of temperature deviations and other malfunctions. If the door is opened without authorization, an integrated alarm sounds after approx. one minute. A monitoring unit can remain in operation for around 30 hours via the rechargeable battery. If the power should ever fail, the signal remains active through the battery and can continue to inform or warn you about changes to the device.

Our trained service team will always provide you with more detailed information about features and characteristics.
