Temperature-sensitive patient samples and reagents must be safeguarded to ensure accurate test results, support regulatory compliance, and prevent financial losses. Advances in refrigeration technology have now made it possible for clinical laboratories to protect their stored products while at the same time reducing energy consumption.

GX Solutions professional medical-grade refrigerators from Helmer Scientific utilize innovative OptiCool™ technology. Designed for critical healthcare applications, GX Solutions offer optimized temperature management along with decreased energy use.

Conventional cooling technology has been used in medical-grade refrigeration for many years. These traditional systems control the temperature but consume more energy than newer approaches.

Transitioning conventional refrigeration in the clinical lab to GX Solutions decreases energy usage. This, in turn, helps facilities reduce their utility bills, lowering the total cost of ownership.

In addition to cutting back on energy use, GX Solutions can reduce heat output into the lab and benefit the environment by decreasing global warming potential. These advantages help clinical laboratories support their organization’s sustainability initiatives.
