Laboratory coolers can either cool liquid baths, solutions, test samples and other substances in the lab. In terms of function, laboratory coolers are similar to refrigerator freezers. The main difference is that laboratory coolers are faster at reaching freezing temperature and have a wider temperature range depending on the model’s wattage. The higher the wattage, the higher the cooling capacity of the cooler. Coolers can either use liquid or gas as their cooling agent depending on the model.
Laboratory coolers come in all shapes and sizes depending on the samples they can hold. Benchtop coolers are mostly used to cool or freeze smaller containers such as those containing enzymes, cells, regents and solutions. Most benchtop coolers have a ‘quick freeze’ feature that rapidly freezes samples within a few minutes. Larger models are often more versatile since benchtop models are often limited by their size. Larger coolers are used to cool down or freeze large liquid baths, larger batches of laboratory samples, and even conserve water in laboratories since many larger cooler models can reuse chilled liquid to maintain cold temperature.
