WEBINAR: Liquid Nitrogen Containers Sample Storage For Biobanks Of All Sizes
12 April 2021
Duration: 20- 30 minutes
In cooperation with our partner, Haier Biomedical.
Cryogens are substances used to produce very low temperatures of below -153 degrees Celsius. Liquid nitrogen, which has a boiling point of -196 degrees Celsius (-320 Fahrenheit), is a liquid that is commonly used in laboratories. All cryogens can be extremely hazardous if not handled properly. Direct contact with the liquid, vapor or non-insulated parts of equipment used to transfer cryogens can immediately freeze body tissue and cause frostbite and injuries similar to a thermal burn. Cryogenic liquids also rapidly expand when converted from a liquid to a gas as it warms, leading to the possibility that enough oxygen is displaced for asphyxiation to occur.
Lu Wensi with an engineer from Haier will cover basic information about different types of liquid nitrogen containers from Haier biomedical series.
