FARRAR Expands Precision Cold Storage Solutions with Lab Grade Refrigerator and Freezer, Plus Ultra-Low Temperature Freezer

DAVIDSON, N.C., Dec. 12, 2023 – FARRAR TM, a brand of Trane Technologies, has launched Lab Grade Solutions, a line of proven and performance-demonstrated cold storage offerings. 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 and logistics applications, and segments.​ When combined with existing Ultra-Low Chamber (ULC) freezer and Controlled Rate Chamber solutions, FARRAR’s latest offerings now represent one of the industry’s only complete line of cold-storage solutions.

Configured for life science applications and optimized for sustainability, these Lab Grade Refrigerator, Freezer, and FARRAR Ultra-Low-Temperature (ULT) Freezer solutions are ENERGY STAR® certified[1] and use SNAP/EU F-gas-compliant 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). 

New offerings include:

Lab Grade Refrigerators (+2°C to +10°C with +/-1°C uniformity) are ideal for applications that require both consistent, powerful refrigeration performance and energy efficiency to meet rigorous sustainability requirements. These refrigerators are available in upright and under counter options and offer ENERGY STAR® certified energy consumption by pairing a variable capacity compressor with a low global warming potential (GWP) natural hydrocarbon refrigerant. They also feature ultra-quiet operation within 42dB – 52dB.

Lab Grade Freezers (-15°C to -30°C with <+/-2°C uniformity) meet the application need when temperature excursions, reaching/maintaining set point temperature, and ice management prove challenging. Available in upright and under counter options, these freezers feature ultra-quiet operation within 46dB - 52dB. They also help support facility sustainability initiatives by pairing a variable capacity compressor with a low GWP, natural hydrocarbon refrigerant.

The FARRARTM Ultra-Low Temperature (ULT) Freezer (-50°C to -86°C with +/-5°C uniformity) delivers superior temperature performance across three key areas – chamber uniformity, reliability, and temperature recovery – while supporting sustainability goals. This wide-temperature range ULT Freezer features an intuitive, integrated Smart Access Panel and PIN

controlled electronic door lock to enable a quick and easy user experience while helping ensure sample safety. Integrated temperature logs help enable convenient temperature data download. To help minimize environmental impact and achieve sustainability goals, the low-energy consumption solution leverages variable-capacity compressors and low GWP, natural hydrocarbon, refrigerants. Designed with quality and reliability in mind, FARRAR’s Lab Grade ULT Freezer has undergone a detailed ALT to deliver a long service life.

“FARRAR Lab Grade Solutions and ULT Freezer provide life science customers with a single-source supplier to simplify their equipment acquisition process,” said Garrett Favier, Trane Technologies Life Science Solutions FARRAR business leader. “These solutions deliver the quality and performance customers have come to expect from FARRAR — in wider temperature ranges and smaller footprints — giving them more ways to solve their application needs.”
