-60°C Biomedical Chest Freezer DW-60W

The Haier Biomedical Chest Freezer is a versatile storage solution, capable of securely housing a wide range of biological samples, as well as providing a low-temperature testing environment for special materials.

These freezers are commonly used in hospitals, research institutions, and medical laboratories due to their excellent safety features, easy operation, and reliable functionality for storage of biological products and biological samples such as blood cells, viruses, bone and bacteria. Also used for electronic devices and other materials used for cryogenic tests.


Equipped with a single compressor auto cascade refrigeration system, this freezer provides high efficiency cooling power, while 100mm insulation thickness ensures optimal protection for cold temperature and energy conservation.

Thanks to its HC refrigerant system, this freezer is optimized for improved refrigeration efficiency, reducing energy consumption by up to 50%. Additionally, its noise cancelling technology ensures a low noise level of less than 43 dba, and its multiple alarm system includes temperature alarms, sensor error alarms, power failure alarms, and remote alarms.

The dual seals design of this freezer retains cold temperature more effectively and eliminates condensation on gaskets. Its interior lock and lockable casters provide added security and ease of installation and manoeuvring. The waterproof digital control system ensures precise temperature control, while the stainless steel inner cabinet makes it easy to clean.

How often should you defrost a lab freezer?

The frequency of defrosting a lab freezer depends on the model and the usage pattern. However, it is generally recommended to defrost a lab freezer at least once or twice a year to maintain its optimal performance.

A buildup of ice in the freezer can reduce its efficiency and increase the risk of freezer burn, damaging the quality of the samples stored inside. It can also increase the risk of mechanical failure, leading to costly repairs or even loss of samples.

Following the manufacturer's instructions for defrosting the freezer is important, as the process may vary depending on the model. Generally, defrosting should be done when the freezer is relatively empty, with the samples stored elsewhere temporarily. The freezer should be turned off and allowed to thaw completely before cleaning and restarting.

In addition to regular defrosting, keeping the freezer clean and well-maintained is vital to ensure its longevity and reliability.

What different types of laboratory freezer are available?

There are several types of laboratory freezers available, including:

  1. Upright freezers: These freezers have a vertical orientation and are available in a range of sizes, from under benchtop models to large capacity units that can store hundreds of samples. Upright freezers typically have several shelves, drawers or compartments for easy organisation of samples.

  2. Chest freezers: Chest freezers have a horizontal orientation and are often used for storing large or bulky items. They are more energy efficient than upright freezers and can provide longer holdover times during power outages.

  3. Biomedical Chest Freezers: These -60°C chest freezers are suitable for storing a wide variety of biological products including viruses, bacteria, blood cells, skin and bone as well as ocean-going supplies and electronic devices. 

  4. Ultra-low temperature freezers: These freezers provide even lower temperatures, down to -80°C. They are often used for long-term storage of biological specimens, vaccines, and other critical materials.

What are the benefits of a chest freezer over upright?

There are several benefits of owning a chest freezer over an upright:

  1. More Storage Space: A chest freezer provides extra storage space, which is particularly useful if you have a large products or samples.

  2. Energy Savings: Chest freezers are generally more energy-efficient than upright freezers, as they have less air space to cool and maintain their temperature more easily. This can result in lower energy bills over time.

  3. Emergency Preparedness: In the event of a power outage, a chest freezer will keep samples frozen for a longer period of time, giving you more time to find an alternative solution. This can be particularly important during natural disasters or other emergencies.
