Corning CoolBox Systems are bench top cooling systems that provide sample cooling or freezing without ice, electricity, or batteries. Versatile and accommodating to a variety of sample formats and temperatures, the CoolBox modular design enables the use of both Corning CoolRack® and Corning CoolSink® thermoconductive sample modules to hold microcentrfuge tubes, cryogenic vials, PCR tubes, or assay plates at a stable temperature while you work.
Corning CoolRack and CoolSink thermo-conductive modules reduce variability which originates from tubes or wells placed directly into ice, dry ice, alcohol baths, water baths, and other temperature sources. Place the thermo-conductive modules directly onto a temperature source between -196°C to >100°C and it will rapidly adapt to that temperature. Both CoolRack and CoolSink modules ensure +/- 0.1°C temperature uniformity across all tubes and plates when cooling, snap-freezing, heating, or thawing.
All thermo-conductive modules may be autoclaved, high heat sterilized, or decontaminated with bleach, alcohol, or other disinfectants or lab detergents.
