From -80°C to -60°C: Comparison of Freezing Temperatures in the Biobank

Can we promote sustainable biobanking through the choice of freezing temperatures while maintaining the quality of biological samples?

We invite you to a webinar with focus on RBGB's research into various freezing temperatures impact on energy consumption and the quality of biological samples.

The use of Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers (ULTs) is crucial for safe and reliable storage of biological material, but ULTs can have an undesirably high energy consumption. Several factors can affect their efficiency, such as selected operating temperatures. and the frequency and duration of freezer door openings.

Bio-and Genome Bank Denmark (RBGB) has investigated the temperature stability and energy consumption of the Haier ULT freezer DW-86L959 at -80°C, -70°C, and -60°C, as well as how ULT freezers are heated in case of power failure.

The results of the study will serve as a basis for future decisions and efforts to promote more sustainable biobanking, thereby contributing to a greener climate initiative without risking a reduction in the quality of biologically valuable samples.

The webinar



In this webinar, we will focus on RBGB's research into various freezing temperatures, specifically at -80°C, -70°C, and -60°C. The study examines how the choice of freezing temperature impacts temperature stability and energy consumption, while continually ensuring high quality biological samples.

Corrie Lynne Madsen will discuss the execution of the study and present its findings.

We look forward to welcoming you to the webinar!
