Healthcare, Biotech Firms and Research Facilities Depend on PurityPlus® for More Than Specialty Gases


In particular Albany industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much in demand from Noble Gas Solutions as the specialty gases we sell.

As you’d figure, the life sciences rely very much on this type of equipment. They use it most often to protect delicate biological materials – human tissue, stem cells, bone marrow, cord blood, and the like. Medical and pharmaceutical enterprises naturally use our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all kinds of medical research, including the creation of vaccines. Then, as you’d expect, there are the blood banks, tissue banks, hospitals, and clinics for whom such equipment is indispensable. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers are government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories that specialize in the amassing, processing, inventorying, and dissemination of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators are offered in a number of models and sizes – the better to permit long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic matter at the most advantageous temperature. The availability of different hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other traits ensures a refrigerator for almost any cryogenic application.

Our dewars have vacuum-layered walls that give you unbeatable thermal insulation and thus markedly reduce the rate at which their contents – either liquid nitrogen or other cryogenic matter – is lost to evaporation.

As a complement to these cryogenic hardware, we also supply Albany life science firms with …

  • a high-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This mechanism installs effortlessly on the vent valve of these containers to relieve – almost noiselessly – the pressure of the compressed gases they hold. Result? Less container damage and fewer lab upsets.
  • a range of gas cylinder manifold options including those with automatic changeover. These systems facilitate a continuous flow of gas while automatically changing cylinder or bank priority from the primary source to an extra supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As crucial as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, we furnish other Albany-area industries with these products as well. Case in point: the making of high-end metal products often involves the use of cryogenics. Utilities use cryogenics too – to cool wires and aid in the smooth transmission of electric power. In the food industry, cryogenic flash-freezing helps preserve food nutrients and texture over a longer shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is essential in the development of superconductors for, say, MRI machines or use in quantum computing.
