The intuitive thawing station

Guarantees the most even and intuitive thawing

The SPL Guard Arizona is a unique thawing station for uniform and fast thawing of samples. The Arizona thaws a complete rack from -80°C to 5°C in only 6 minutes. The SPL Guard Arizona stops thawing when the desired temperature is reached and confirms this with a beeping sound. The thawing station is compatible with a wide range of SBS-format racks from different brands, such as Micronic, Azenta Life Sciences, Matrix and LVL Technologies.

The main advantage is that only ambient air is used for thawing, where the real-time temperature data on the display during thawing cycle provides process insights. The automatic stop (indicated with beeping sound) when the calibrated temperature has been reached ensures that samples can be processed more quickly for downstream use. SPL Guard Arizona is energy efficient, with a cycle time of only 6 minutes from fully frozen at negative 80 degrees centigrade, to positive 5 degrees.
