The SPL Guard Arizona, a New Single Rack Thawing Station

New single rack thawing station can thaw a complete rack from -80°C to 5°C in only six minutes

SPL Guard introduces a new single rack thawing station: the SPL Guard Arizona. With this unique instrument, lab researchers can thaw a complete rack from -80°C to 5°C in only six minutes. For the thawing of the samples, only ambient air is used.

The SPL Guard Arizona shows real-time temperature data on the display during the thawing cycle which provides insight in the process. The Arizona automatically stops thawing when the desired temperature is reached and confirms this with a beeping sound. This ensures that samples can be processed more quickly for downstream use.

The thawing station is a consistent and reproducible solution, compatible with a wide range of SBS-format racks from different brands, such as Micronic, Azenta Life Sciences, Thermo Matrix, and LVL Technologies.
