CoolBox XT, purple
CoolBox XT System is a versatile ice-free alternative to ice buckets and gel-filled coolers. Cool, snap-freeze or transport samples without worry of contamination or temperature variation. Includes CoolBox XT base, collar and lid, and one XT Cooling Core for 0.5 to 4? cooling. Available in purple, green, orange or pink.
To use, pre-freeze the XT Cooling Core in a -20? freezer until frozen. When ready to work, place frozen core into the base of the CoolBox XT and rest a CoolRack or CoolSink thermo-conductive tube or plate module on the core. Provides over 16 hours of 0.5 to 4? cooling with lid closed and over 10 hours with the lid open. Magnetized collar secures tightly to the base providing a cold well for the sample module. Holds one thermo-conductive CoolRack or CoolSink sample module, including some with automation-compatible features.
Applications include ice temperature cooling, maintaining frozen samples with optional XT Freezing Core (requires one), snap-freezing with dry ice in the base, short transport of temperature-sensitive samples, cooling or freezing in tissue culture hood, clean environment or other area where ice contamination is a concern.

Care and Cleaning:
The material has excellent resistance to fluid absorption and abrasion. Do not use the CoolBox XT base for pulverizing dry ice. Maximum temperature exposure: 60°C. Avoid prolonged exposure to UV light sources. All components including housing, XT Cooling Core and optional XT Freezing Core are compatible with repeated and prolonged cryogenic temperature exposure. All components can be cleaned with aqueous detergents, alcohol, and acid/base viricide (such as Virkon S) solutions. Rinse with clear water after using cleaning solutions. Do not autoclave.
