Noblesville, Ind., Nov. 2023 — Helmer Scientific, part of Trane Technologies Life Science Solutions Business and leading manufacturer of cold storage products and processing equipment, has announced the completion of the GX Solutions Cold Storage product line expansion with the launch of GX Solutions Ultra Low Temperature Freezers. 

GX Solutions Cold Storage Systems now include refrigerators, freezers, pass-thru refrigerators, and ultra-low freezers. They are uniquely suited to offer healthcare providers optimized temperature, noise, and energy management while using environmentally friendly natural refrigerants that support sustainability initiatives. 

GX Solutions ULT freezers are designed for the unique needs of the healthcare environment for the safe and secure short- or long-term storage of vaccines and temperature-sensitive biological samples, including viruses, sera, and proteins. GX Solutions ULT freezers are available in 18 and 26 cubic feet models and feature Helmer’s OptiCool™ cooling technology to achieve optimized performance. 

The OptiCool™ cooling system in GX Solutions ULT freezers combines dual variable capacity compressors (VCC) and natural hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants in a cascade refrigeration system to create a system that delivers optimized temperature performance and energy efficiency.
