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


In various Riverside industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much demanded from Elite Air as the specialty gases we sell.

Of course, the life sciences rely heavily on this sort 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 concerns especially make use of our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all kinds of medical research, including the development of vaccines. Then, as you’d expect, there are the blood banks, tissue banks, hospitals, and clinics for whom this sort of equipment is indispensable. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers include government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories that specialize in the collection, processing, inventorying, and dispensation of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators come in various models and sizes – the better to facilitate long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic substances at the proper temperature. The availability of various hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other attributes ensures a refrigerator for almost any cryogenic need.

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

Rounding out our line of cryogenic hardware, we also offer Riverside life science researchers …

  • a top-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This device installs effortlessly on the vent valve of these containers to relieve – almost silently – the pressure of the compressed gases they hold. Result? Less container damage and fewer lab disruptions.
  • a number of gas cylinder manifold options including those with automatic changeover. These systems permit a continuous flow of gas while automatically changing cylinder or bank priority from the origina[l|ting]92] source to an auxilliary supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As important as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, other Riverside-area industries use these products as well. For example, the manufacture of high-end metal products usually requires the use of cryogenics. Utilities rely on cryogenics too – to cool wires and facilitate the smooth transmission of electric power. In the food industry, cryogenic flash-freezing helps protect food nutrients and texture over a longer shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is essential in the production of superconductors for, say, MRI machines or use in quantum computing.

Whatever your field, whatever your application, get the favored cryogenic equipment and gases for it from Elite Air, your Riverside PurityPlus® Partner.
