VACCINE REFRIGERATOR VIDEO & RELEVANT NEWS The vaccination season is approaching for the northern hemisphere. To keep up, we came out with a video showcasing our vaccine fridges and we also wanted, in a way to 'time stamp' it, to share with you some interesting news about the industry. We hope you enjoy it.

Challenges are fun. They encourage us to deliver. Living in a 'challenge-oriented' philosophy will lead to a culture of experimentation in which we are requested to present the results which will sometimes  lead to great ideas or bold failures. But then you get the chance to have a new challenge and experiment again, push your limits and in the end, grow. It doesn't matter if you win or loose a challenge. What matters is to deliver. When you learn to deliver without postponing you will understand that major achievements come from doing. Failing or winning will just show you what to do more and what to do less. We want to share a couple of challenges: 1. Maxim & Katia Mezentsev created this beautiful video of freezing  nature. Some challenges do not come from elsewhere but from our necessity of moving away from the status quo. These kind of challenges will help you build your identity, your character. We love this video because, like we do, it thrives with the fact of an object in the freezing process. It's worth the look, the video lasts less than one minute and it was selected as a 'Vimeo Staff Picked'. Frozen from kveten on Vimeo. 2. The second challenge was one that our CEO, Jean Fallacara, decided to take : 'RECOVERY TESTING from a 2min Door Opening'.  He was very pleased when he received the results from the engineering team. Please read the post he wrote about it here. Challenges make us grow and define ourselves. We will continue delivering nice challenges we stumble upon with. We hope you enjoy as much as we do.    


WiZBox creates the Ability to Predict ULT Freezer's Failure. The most advanced,  proactive, fault management system is finally here. And it's included for free with every Twincore. Think about how many samples have been lost in the recent history of science (Harvard Brain) because of the lack of ability to predict failure before it happens. Getting samples sometimes is not an easy task, but they can be lost when changes of temperature occur without notice. To right this wrong, we present (or developed) the Twincore and its Proactive maintenance device WizBox: The safest ult in the market, capable of maintaining -82 even when one of its 2 compressors fail. But we didn't stop there. We designed, and of course included, the most advanced monitoring system for the TwinCore. We are able to watch its behavior 24/7 and prevent any malfunction. ULT MONITORING SYSTEM: The most advanced yet! This system includes an app that lets you monitor your freezer's behavior from the palm of your hand. And not only that, this app features settings control and alarm history to name a few. We came out with a video. Please check it out here. For more information on the WizBox, click here.

When Ultra Low Temperature becomes Extreme Low Temperature

Ultra low temperatures. We're just amazed with this universe that is unveiled when we go down the thermometer. Unimaginable processes are possible as predicted by science fiction or really, really smart scientists. In this case, we want to share one of our favorite 'cold' stories about Erick Cornell, Nobel Prize Laureate: "The Nobel Prize in Physics 2001 was awarded jointly to Eric A. Cornell, Wolfgang Ketterle and Carl E. Wieman "for the achievement of Bose-Einstein condensation in dilute gases of alkali atoms, and for early fundamental studies of the properties of the condensates"." The video we are sharing, explained by Cornell himself, illustrates how to achieve the Bose-Einstein condensation, a state of matter in which a diluted gas is brought down near absolute zero. At this point, Quantum effects become apparent. The 'Quantum-world' is of great interest in our everyday life as it is the key to a major leap in computer technology. By implementing Quantum computation, big problems that would take years (that's right, years) to compute in today's machines will be solved in a matter of seconds. If you want more detailed information about this issue, we recommend this Ted Talk video featuring Michelle Simmons at Tedx Sydney. We hope quantum technology arrives in the near future. But for now, we will continue keeping our stable Ultra Low Temperatures..... ultra low. The video is presented by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. We hope you enjoy it.

Wood Frog: The Miracle of being frozen for a season

Many animals look for shelter to resist winter. The North American wood frog instead, embraces it and prepares its body to resist a season completely frozen. How do they do it? First, the frog draws water out of its cells to spaces where it would do less damage if it freezes. At the same time, its liver produces large amounts of sugar that act as anti-freeze. Then, the entire animal slowly freezes from the outside until its heart stops beating. When spring arises they come back to life! On the subject, Science Line says: "As the wood frog is freezing, its heart continues pumping the protective glucose around its body, but the frog’s heart slows and eventually stops. All other organs stop functioning. The frog doesn’t use oxygen and actually appears to be dead. In fact, if you opened up a frozen frog, the organs would look like “beef jerky” and the frozen water around the organs like a “snow cone,” says Jon Costanzo, a physiological ecologist at Miami University in Ohio who studies freeze-tolerance. Any ideas on how to use nature's freezing processes to make the world a better place? We would like to share a very interesting video hosted by David Attenborough about the North American wood frog: The Miracle of the Wood Frog. Enjoy! Image taken from ScienceMag.
