Helmer Scientific has been serving clinical laboratories for more than 40 years. Over time we have received questions about what is important in the design of a Laboratory Freezer. What is it about the freezer that makes it suitable for storing reagents and patient specimens? How does it help a clinical lab ensure it is meeting the requirements of accrediting agencies?
For this reason, we have developed a Best Practices Guide for Selecting Laboratory Freezers. It includes specific College of American Pathologists (CAP) checklist requirements and considerations for implementation that apply to the characteristics of a Laboratory Freezer. The guide also provides several other considerations for best practices. It clarifies how the design of a Laboratory Freezer can help clinical laboratories comply with requirements and facilitate best practices in an easy-to-use checklist format.
