Estimated Read Time

DAVIDSON, N.C., March 24, 2023 – FARRAR ™ , a brand of Trane Technologies (NYSE: TT), a global climate innovator – has expanded its range of high-performance, precision temperature-controlled bulk storage solutions. The Ultra-Low Chamber series now includes the ULC-259, which is optimized for material handling and ergonomic reach.

Consistent with other offerings in FARRAR’s ultra-low reach-in series, the ULC-259 is purpose-built for life science applications including pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing, biorepository, and bio-logistics. FARRAR’s fully redundant ULC chambers are the only wide-range, -20°C to -80°C, forced-air, ultra-low-temperature freezers on the market. The forced-air refrigeration system provides unmatched temperature uniformity and rapid recoveries from door openings to the ULC family.

Designed with frequent access storage, clinical trial kitting, and logistics prep process needs in mind, the ULC-259 is ergonomically engineered for high density storage and pull/pack/ship accessibility. The chamber accommodates smart sliding racks and carts to minimize product/substance/sample handling, while easily allowing loading and pulling from the ground. Intelligent drawer systems accommodate blood bag and cryo box upright ULT racking, shippable packaging, bottles, and single use bags and shells, maximizing storage density without sacrificing organization.

“The rapid growth of biologic-based drugs means our customers need more cold storage options for bulk drug substance, final drug product, biologic samples, lot samples, and clinical trial kits,” said Holly Paeper, president of Life Science Solutions. “With the addition of the ULC-259, customers can now choose from a broader range of solutions to help them optimize their ultra-low temperature storage process.”



Within life science applications, FARRARTM , a brand of Trane Technologies, is focused on meeting the rapidly growing demand for +5°C to -80°C wide-range precision temperature processes specifically in the manufacturing, storage, and transport of medicines, vaccines, and other life science products. Leveraging our expertise in refrigeration, cold chain, and temperature-controlled environments, FARRAR brings value to global customers by offering a powerful portfolio of solutions, predictive monitoring capabilities, and robust services.
