The Thermo Scientific VersaCool Refrigerated Circulating Bath is
suitable for use as a refrigerated bath or circulator that can control
the temperature of external equipment. It can easily be used under the
bench, inside the fume hood or in industrial and even mobile
installations. Thermo Fisher Scientific will showcase the VersaCool
Refrigerated Circulating Bath at booth #2441 during Pittcon 2014, being
held at McCormick Place in Chicago from March 2 - 6.
The VersaCool's control head and heating/cooling coils are mounted
internally, and this first-of-its-kind "headless" design frees up
valuable space inside the unit, allowing users to fit more samples in
the same footprint and also clean the instrument more easily. A variable
speed pump and fans contribute to reduced energy consumption when
compared to previous models.
"In the laboratory, it's all about maximizing results and maintaining
sample integrity while minimizing space and energy usage," said Howard
Kopech, vice president and general manager, temperature control, for
Thermo Fisher. "Our new VersaCool is an important advancement that
leverages our technologies. Its features make it ideal for life science
and academic researchers, pharmaceutical developers and industrial
The VersaCool's advanced communications and control features are
designed to ensure that samples are being properly maintained. This is
achieved by monitoring the temperature of the fluid either in the bath,
or circulated by the VersaCool into an application such as a bioreactor
in biotech and biopharma labs or a condenser in chemical/petrochemical
applications. Users can monitor the instrument and receive notifications
through a Bluetooth™-enabled smartphone or tablet, or connect to an
existing Thermo Scientific Smart-Vue enabled lab for wireless
temperature monitoring and traceability.
The VersaCool's hinged-lid provides an ergonomic feature that allows the
user to switch easily between left-hand and right-hand bath access.
Additional ergonomic features include the control panel being located on
the front of the unit. Users no longer have to reach across the bath
working area to access the control system, minimizing the risk of bath
fumes interfering with the touchscreen. Additional features include:
Tool-less, drip-less rack and lid: Maximum application
flexibility, easier cleanup and enhanced safety.
Global voltage: Automatically detects the appropriate
frequency and voltage to enable operation anywhere in the world;
simplifies ordering and stocking for international companies looking
to offer accessories with their products.
Intuitive touch-screen interface: Large intuitive color display
for easy and safe operation.
