Most of the liquid nitrogen tank models of various brands start at 1 liter and end at 175 liters;
The liquid nitrogen tanks used for cell storage are often large-capacity and large-caliber. 30-175 liters account for a large proportion. Different capacities correspond to different cell numbers. Do you know how many cells can be stored in a 175-liter liquid nitrogen tank?
Before discussing the storage quantity of cells, we need everyone to understand that cryopreservation racks are generally used to store samples in liquid nitrogen tanks for cells, not lifting tubes like semen storage, so laboratory supplies such as 175-liter liquid nitrogen tanks are more expensive. big.
How many cells can it hold?
First look at the specifications and quantities of the cryopreservation racks, as well as the caliber of the liquid nitrogen tank!
The 175-liter liquid nitrogen tank has two diameters of 125mm and 210mm, and the specifications of the cryopreservation racks are different.
125mm caliber uses 5X5 freezer racks, which can be equipped with 6 or 8 freezer racks (8 slots);
The 210mm caliber can be equipped with five 9X9 or 6X6 cryopreservation racks.
The specifications of the cryopreservation racks are different, and the corresponding number of cryopreservation tubes, that is, the total number of cells is different!
175 liters 125mm conventional model, can store 2250 2ml cryopreservation tubes;
8-slot type, can store 2ml cryovials 2600.
The 175-liter liquid nitrogen tank with a diameter of 210mm can hold 4860 2ml cryopreservation tubes and 1800 5ml cryopreservation tubes.
The above is the specific storage quantity of the 175-liter cell liquid nitrogen tank. It is foolproof to confirm the sample and then select the container!
