Traditional methods of cooling biological samples often rely on direct immersion in ice buckets, which are prone to considerable temperature variability, contamination and loss of wetted labels.
ChilliBlocks can be used directly in conjunction with an ice bath, keeping your samples in microplates, vials and Eppendorf tubes cool and dry. For precise temperature controlled experiments, ChilliBlocks should be used with our cooling/heating base unit.
The ChilliBlock base unit attaches to most laboratory cooling/heating circulators, enabling precise, stable and even temperature control of biological samples from -30 to +160 °C. Insulated to prevent ice formation at lower temperatures and ensure homogeneity, the ChilliBlock enables stable, consistent temperature control (+/- 0.1 °C) of biological samples, in a wide range of standard and custom formats.
Manufactured from clear, resistant, anodized aluminium, ChilliBlocks offer good chemical resistance and homogenous temperatures of samples. ChilliBlock’s low profile allows it to be fully compatible with robotic sample handling systems. Find out more here.
