The freezers are subjected to rigorous long-term reliability testing, having undergone more than 5,400 combined days of continuous reliability testing in the field and laboratory environments to help ensure each unit meets the company’s stringent quality standards.

The TSX Universal Series ULT freezers are ENERGY STAR certified and produced in a Zero-Waste to Landfill certified facility, demonstrating the company’s focus on sustainability.

By obtaining ISO Class 5.5 cleanroom designation for TSX Universal Series ULT freezers, cell and gene therapy customers can have confidence in the cleanliness and control of their storage environments. Additionally, customers can benefit from an industry-leading warranty and global service support through Unity Lab Services.
