Pharmaceutical Refrigerators


Effective capacity
Temperature range
2℃ to 14℃


Stable Temperature environment is important for the storage of your precious drugs and samples. However, household refrigerators do not offer a stable temperature environment due to relatively simple construction. Panasonic Pharmaceutical refrigerators employ a forced air circulation and sophisticated plenum systems to realize a uniformed temperature throughout the chamber.

Inside Temp. of Household Refrigerator

- Typical Cooling System of Household Refrigerator -

・Only one FAN to cool down refrigerator and freezer

A conventional auto defrost system turns on the defrost heater every 7 - 8 hours. During this, the chamber air temperature raises.

Temperature Stability - Temperature Uniformity

- Multi air-flow plenum cooling system -

・Uniform cold air flow distributio throughout the chamber
・Ensure temperature uniformity of big capacity chamber

Panasonic cycle defrost system turns on the defrost heater each off period of the compressor. Each defrost period is very short and unnoticeable.

Ergonomic design

The ergonomic design of the MPR series refrigerators provides a clear view of stored items through the large framed windows. The slim profile allows for easy-reach retrieval of your products. Users can choose from two types to suit their needs; one with all wire shelves or one with sliding racks on one side.

Double-sensor temperature management

The double-sensor control system with alarm-exclusive sensor added to the temperature control sensor always monitors the precise chamber temperature.

Safety is a Panasonic standard
Even the best designed refrigerator must be prepared for the unexpected.
  • Cabinet construction
  • View Window design with protective film to prevent shattered glass from scattering onto the floor. Also features key locked doors.
  • Control safety devices
  • Audible and flashing LED visual alarms alert you to the unlikely event of either a high or low temperature condition. An over-shooting prevention circuit automatically switches off the fan motor or heater, if the inside temperature rises abnormally.
  • Comprehensive alarms
  • In addition to Low/High temperature alarms and door ajar alarm, power failure alarm can be installed as an option. Remote alarm terminal is also provided as standard.
    Control Panel
    Worry-free cycle defrosting system

    With Panasonic’s cycle defrost system, defrosting is performed automatically during compressor “off” cycles, and by sensing frost levels. This way defrosting is performed only when required, further protecting the contents against unnecessary temperature rise. The defrosting heater also acts as an emergency heat source to prevent samples from freezing.

    HFC refrigerant & HCFC-free insulation

    Panasonic biomedical equipment is designed for low environmental impact. The MPR-514 and 1014 series use HFC refrigerant and the foamed-in-place insulation is HCFC free.
    Data Acquisition System (optional) The Data acquisition system enables remote monitoring of pharmaceutical refrigerators.
