Frequently asked questions

How can I get service for these newly available FARRAR offerings?

We offer a broad network of both internal field service engineers and trusted third-party partners whom we rely on to provide installation and setup, PM services, IQ/OQ/PQ validation, and break/fix service. For state or regional partner recommendations, reach out to your local FARRAR sales representative. Recommendations will vary based on the location and complexity of the request.

How can I learn more about FARRAR's expanded portfolio of cold storage solutions?

You can contact us at lssinfo@tranetechnologies.com or check out our website at www.farrarscientific.com.

What refrigerants do the FARRAR™ ULT and Lab Grade Refrigerators and Freezers use?

To decrease carbon footprint and increase energy efficiency, our solutions use R290, R600a, EPA SNAP, and EU F-Gas compliant low global warming potential (GWP) natural hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants.

Are these solutions ENERGY STAR® rated? What other standards do they meet?

The newly launched FARRAR units (including the ULT) have been designed and manufactured to meet ENERGY STAR standards. The Lab Grade Refrigerator and Freezer solutions are already ENERGY STAR certified, with certification pending on the FARRAR Ultra-Low-Temperature (ULT) Freezer solution.

These solutions use SNAP/EU F-gas-compliant low global warming potential (GWP) natural hydrocarbon refrigerants. They also have undergone detailed accelerated life testing (ALT) and are manufactured in an ISO 13485:2016 certified, FDA-registered facility in full compliance with FDA 21CFR Part 820 (GMP).

How is FARRAR’s portfolio expanding?

FARRAR, a brand of Trane Technologies, has officially expanded its cold storage portfolio by introducing FARRAR Lab Grade +4°C and -30°C upright and undercounter refrigerators and freezers and the FARRAR Ultra-Low Temperature (ULT) -86°C freezer.

These solutions enable FARRAR to serve as a single source provider for precision cold storage solutions within pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing, academic research, drug discovery, logistics applications, and more. When combined with the existing Ultra-Low Chamber (ULC) freezer series and Controlled Rate Chamber freeze/thaw solutions, FARRAR’s latest offerings now represent one of the industry’s only complete line of cold-storage solutions.

What are the features and benefits of the FARRAR Lab Grade Refrigerators and Freezers?

The high-performing units are workhorses for life science applications. They are designed to be highly reliable with forced air convection and excess cooling capacity. The units control temperature very tightly, preventing temperature excursions such as freezing products due to user storage configurations. Simple displays ease validation requirements, and configurable storage solutions provide high flexibility no matter what is stored.

Features and benefits include:

  • High-quality and reliability
  • World-class temperature performance
  • Tight temperature uniformity
  • ENERGY STAR® certified for energy efficiency
  • SNAP/EU F-gas-compliant low global warming potential (GWP) natural hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants to support sustainability
  • Ultra-quiet operation 46dB - 52d for productive office/lab environments
  • Auto defrost without temperature excursion risk
  • Specify/Buy sales support simplicity

Are these new products powered by forced air convection?

Like the FARRAR™ ULC series, the lab grade refrigerators and freezers utilize forced air convection. The FARRAR ULT leverages cold wall technology, the same as other ULTs on the market today.

When will these new products be available for purchase? What is the lead time for domestic and international orders?

FARRAR Lab Grade Refrigerators and Freezers and the FARRAR ULT are now available for purchase. Lead time for domestic orders can be as little as a few days for materials in stock or 3 weeks for configurable options. Lead time for international orders is less than 1 week for stock orders and 4 weeks for configurable options. Shipments will begin on Jan. 2, 2024.

What are the features and benefits of the FARRAR ULT?

FARRAR’s ULT freezer for life science applications is a high-quality, highly reliable, energy-efficient, high-performing unit that is optimized for rack storage, noise management, temperature management/uniformity, and energy management/sustainability. This makes it an ideal replacement for older units when meeting sustainability goals. This unit is optimized for biobanking, academic research, and long-term storage in operations.

Features and benefits include:

  • Integrated Smart Access Panel and PIN-controlled electronic door lock
  • Integrated temperature logs
  • Designed to meet ENERGY STAR® standards
  • Low energy consumption
  • SNAP/EU F-gas-compliant low global warming potential (GWP) natural hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants to support sustainability [R-170/R-290 (Low stage) and R-290 (High stage)]
  • 5 layers of protection with 5 inner doors.
