Stable Temperature Environment for Clinical, Research, Pharmaceutical and Industrial Use.

Temperature stability

Panasonic ’s temperature control system with thermistor monitor and microprocessor control reliably maintains cabinet temperature at the set level and is unaffected by ambient temperature. Forced air circulation ensures that the cabinet temperature returns to the set point immediately after door openings and remains uniform throughout the cabinet.

Speedy & powerful refrigeration

To cope with frequent door openings, Enviro-Centers are equipped with powerful, hermetically sealed compressors. These purpose-built compressors ensure superior pull-down characteristics and precise temperature control.

Wide temperature range

With a temperature range of 2˚C to 23˚C, Enviro-Centers are ideally suited for tests that require a stable, cool temperature.

Easy-to-manage layout

The interior layout flexibility of Enviro-Centers makes them ideal for running experiments that require stable, cool conditions, as well as storage.

Standard alarm & safety features

Enviro-Centers are fitted with buzzers and flashing lights to warn of high and low temperature problems. In the event of an irregular rise in cabinet temperature, the heater automatically shuts off and forced air circulation brings the temperature down. Door locks are fitted to safeguard valuable contents.

Wide temperature range

With a modular width of 770mm (30.3 inches) the MPR-721 offers capacity of 684 liters (24.2 cu.ft.) [MPR-721R: 671 liters (23.7 cu.ft.)], while the 1440mm (56.7 inches)-wide MPR-1411 offers capacity of 1364 liters (48.2 cu.ft.) [MPR-1411R: 1359 liters (48.0 cu.ft.)]. The interior is spacious enough to accommodate column chromatography apparatus or large volumes of reagents, test samples and biologicals.

Large fans

The 120mm-diameter fan ensures an even temperature throughout the cabinet (MPR-1411/R models have a double flow system with two fans). Heat spots from powered test apparatus are minimized and pull-up characteristics after door openings are outstanding.

THFC refrigerant & HCFC-free insulation

Panasonic biomedical equipment is designed for low environmental impact. The MPR-721 and 1411 series use HFC refrigerant and the foamed-in-place insulation is HCFC free.

Cycle defrost

In the 5˚C range, frost buildup on the evaporator is inevitable. This can affect the performance of the heat exchanger. Panasonic has solved this problem with a cycle defrost and evaporator temperature sensor system. This system runs automatically, so there is no need to turn off the power for defrosting. Temperature rise during defrost is minimal. The evaporation heater also doubles as protection against drops in cabinet temperature caused by a low ambient temperature.

User-friendly design and double function door

Easy to read and operate control panel featuring a full array of alarm and safety functions. Thru wall access ports are standard to allow access for power cords. Asthetically attractive exterior color blends well in most lab color schemes. The ”catch-free” rounded corners are safe attractive. Doors open smoothly and close automatically. Some laboratory refrigerators have solid doors for temperature stability, while others have glass doors for easy viewing. Panasonic Enviro-Centers give you the best of both versions. The broad, solid frames with effective gaskets ensure excellent temperature stability, and the double-pane glass windows offer an excellent view of the interior without compromising temperature stability.

Filterless design (MPR-721/721R)

The filterless condenser cuts down on cleaning maintenance.

Protective glass doors

All glass doors include a protective film to prevent shattering in the event of accidental collisions.

Adjustable shelves (MPR-721/1411)

The shelves can be arranged to accommodate tall apparatus such as fraction collectors. These shelves are deep enough [620mm (24.4 inches) front to back] and strong enough (50kg load for the MPR-721, 40kg for the MPR-1411) to hold most apparatus.

Drawer type (MPR-721R/1411R)

The “R” models are fitted with pull-out drawers. With a profile of 100mm (3.9 inches) and 530mm (20.8 inches) front to back, these drawers are deep enough to hold large bottles or reagent kits. They also allow convenient, spaceefficient storage and management of patient medications and other items. The MPR-721R is shipped with five drawers, while the MPR-1411R is shipped with ten drawers, five in each half of the cabinet.

  • Stable, uniform and controlled cabinet temperature is unaffected by ambient temperature
  • Cycle defrost with heater allows defrosting without rise in cabinet temperature
