Taylor-Wharton Products

LABS Cryogenic Storage
LABS Series freezers are designed for efficient long-term liquid nitrogen storage of larger volumes of specimens in Vapour Phase.

With a capacity of up to 80,000 2ml vials, near liquid nitrogen temperature at the top of the storage rack and low nitrogen consumption, the LABS Series sets new industry benchmarks.
In addition to this exceptional performance these freezers also feature ergonomic design including a flat stainless-steel table-top and a folding step permitting easier access to the stored material.
The extremely easy-to-rotate turntable with aluminium dividers permits quick, convenient access to the inventory control system as well as easy sample location.
All models are available with automatic level controllers and the CE mark in compliance with Medical Devices Directive MDD 93/42EC.

Biobanking Cryogenic Storage
K Series Cryogenic Storage
Taylor-Wharton K Series systems are designed to accommodate various inventory control systems.

The high capacity makes it possible to hold up to 38,350 2ml vials or up to 739,500 0,25ml straws.
Normally 10 K and larger systems are connected to a liquid nitrogen tank by means of a hose equipped with a CryoCon unit, which is an electronic Taylor-Wharton automatic level controller that is available in various models.
10K and larger systems are available with the CE mark in compliance with the Medical Devices Directive MDD 93/42 EC.
K Series systems are used throughout the world wherever it is necessary to store biological specimens or larger objects such as organs for transplantation. Like all Taylor-Wharton vessels, the ultra high capacity refrigerators use nitrogen in liquid or vapour phase for cooling.

LS Series Cryogenic Storage
The Taylor Wharton LS Series refrigerators are uniquely designed for large vial capacity in convenient box-type storage racks and at the same time keep LN2 consumption to a minimum.

This results in low operating costs and fewer refills. The rectangular shape of the racks for 5 x 5 or 10 x 10 cryoboxes makes it easier to maintain an overview of and identify stored samples. As a result, samples can be located and removed more easily and faster.

The four vessels cover a range from 750 to 6,000 2 ml vials. The compact LS 750 can be used with either racks or with canisters.
The LS 3000, LS 4800 and LS 6000 models can be equipped with automatic level control and they can be supplied with CE mark in compliance with the Medical Devices Directive (MDD 93/42EC).


These models can also be used for storage in either the vapour or liquid phase. In case of storage in the vapour phase, the two bottom shelves must be left empty, which reduces the capacity. The use of level controller is recommended.

HC Series Cryogenic Storage
Taylor Wharton HC Series refrigerators are designed to provide greater storage capacity in vessels with approximately the same dimensions as those of the XT Series.

HC Series refrigerators are used for essentially the same applications as those of the XT Series. The choice between the two series depends on the specific requirements of the user.
HC vessels are used primarily to store material in vials or for applications that involve larger quantities of straws. The HCL vessel is especially compact, which makes it ideal wherever space is limited.

XT Series Cryogenic Storage
Taylor Wharton XT Series refrigerators are designed to provide long term storage of a variety of materials at cryogenic temperatures.

XT vessels permit holding times of up to 340 days. These extremely long holding times ensure economic operation.
Typical users include research institutes and laboratories as well as pharmaceutical firms and artificial insemination centres.
XT vessels are used primarily to store straws but are also used to store vials when long holding times are important. This series also offers a low profile model (XTL) for use in more confined workspaces.

CX Series Cryogenic Storage
Taylor Wharton CX “dry shippers” are designed to transport a variety of materials at cryogenic temperatures safely.

The unique absorbent material prevents a liquid spill if the unit is tipped over. This eliminates the danger of spills and represents a significant improvement in the shipment of biogenic material.
Storage temperature inside the shipping cavity remains at approximately -150° C until the liquid nitrogen evaporates from the absorbent. This increases reliability, especially in the case of shipments involving long distances.
Due to the superior vacuum performance with super insulation these units provide maximum holding times. With these vessels and the shipping cases international shipment no longer represents a problem.
The vessels comply with IATA regulations. The optional available data logger records the storage temperature of biological material.

LD Series Cryogenic Storage
Taylor Wharton LD Series dewars are used to store and distribute small amounts of liquid nitrogen.

They are ideal for various applications that call for the use of this medium, for example, in the area of materials testing.
This series includes models with capacities ranging from 4 to 50 liters. A pitcher-style model (LD4) is available for easy pouring, as well as a beaker style model (LD5) with a wide mouth to make it easier to immerse objects in the liquid nitrogen.
LD Series dewars feature extremely low evaporation rates and are convenient to use.
Optional equipment includes – liquid withdrawal device, tipping stands, dippers and roller base.
The “Classic 25” is a model that has been found to be extremely practical. Because of its spherical shape and low centre of gravity, it is easy to handle and is ideal for pouring liquid nitrogen.

XL Cylinders
Taylor Wharton XL Series Storage and transport cylinders for liquefied gases represent important components of the Taylor-Wharton Cryo-Science Technology.​

The inner and outer vessels are made of stainless steel, and all vessels comply with the European Directive 1999/36/EC for transportable pressure equipment (TPED).
Series XL 70 to XL 240
These cylinders are transportable units built to rugged construction standards. They are designed for the low-pressure requirements of liquid nitrogen filling, storing and dispensing and feature easy, quick liquid withdrawal.
Series XL 45 to XL 65
These road-transportable cylinders feature automatic pressure-building and economizer circuits. Low-loss holding capabilities help conserve gas during low demand periods. These units set the standard for liquid cylinder performance in the gas industry.
