Ensure temperature consistency and minimize contamination risk with Corning® sample cooling and heating systems

It’s well established that control and standardization of analytical processes is critical to successful research outcomes. However, often the pre-analytical steps are overlooked – although sample collection, handling, storing, and preparation steps are just as important to the overall success of downstream analysis. Variables like inconsistent sample temperature can result in misleading analytical results, which may slow down or ultimately put your research in jeopardy.

Corning’s sample cooling and heating family of systems enable consistent, reproducible, standardized temperature control with or without ice, electricity, batteries, and reduces contamination risk. These solutions address the pitfalls of temperature regulation and reduce contamination risk, keeping your samples cool and stable while you work.

Corning CoolRack® and CoolSink® sample modules eliminate variability and provide uniform temperature when placed into cooling or heating sources such as ice, dry ice, liquid nitrogen, water baths, hot plates, or incubators. These thermo-conductive sample modules rapidly adapt to your temperature source—from -196°C to >+100°C—and ensure +/- 0.1°C temperature uniformity across all tubes, plates, or wells.

The platform is flexible so you can select the right components for your application and working style. CoolRack and CoolSink may be placed in traditional Corning ice buckets and pans or for the most temperature consistent option, use with Corning CoolBox™ ice-free cooling systems. No matter your desired configuration, you can always feel confident that you will keep your sample temperature stable and set your research up for success—right from the start.

CoolRack and CoolSink Thermo-conductive Modules

CoolRack and CoolSink Thermo-conductive Modules

Eliminate variability originating from tubes, plates, or wells placed directly into ice, dry ice, alcohol baths, water baths, and other cooling or heating temperature sources with Corning thermo-conductive modules.

CoolRack tube and CoolSink plate modules provide consistent temperature to all samples, stability, and organization—making sample cooling or heating error-free and reproducible.

Simply place your preferred module directly onto a temperature source between -196°C to >100°C and it will rapidly adapt to that temperature, ensuring +/- 0.1°C temperature uniformity across all samples. All CoolRack and CoolSink modules may be autoclaved, high heat sterilized or decontaminated with bleach, alcohol, or other disinfectants or lab detergents. All modules are compatible with all temperature sources.

Suggested applications include: cooling reagents such as restriction enzymes, dNTPs and antibodies, alcohol-free dry ice snap-freezing of tissue, virus and bacteria samples, and bench top cryogenic tube sorting in liquid nitrogen.

CoolRack and CoolSink thermos-conductive modules eliminate inconsistencies which occur due to inserting tubes or plates directly into ice, dry ice, water or alcohol baths, and other temperature sources. Simply place the CoolRack or CoolSink into the temperature source, and it will rapidly adapt to that temperature, ensuring uniformity when cooling, freezing, or heating/thawing.
