  • Rapidly freeze plasma with the new Thermo Scientific XBF40D-MD -40°C Blast Freezer —a breakthrough sample preparation device for use prior to cold storage.
  • Your freezer is not a sample preparation device.
  • Ultra-low and laboratory-grade freezers are designed to maintain samples at cold temperatures for long-term storage.
  • They are not designed for and do not have the speed or refrigeration capacity to rapidly freeze plasma and other critical storage.
  • Using the new XBF40D-MD for rapid cooling reduces the stress on your sample storage freezer, and freezes your plasma quickly and efficiently.

Key Features:

  • Flexible Design: The XBF accommodates staggered loads of plasma bags and boxes.
  • Accelerated air flow: A large, forced-air circulation freezes plasma – fast!
  • Self-contained refrigeration system: Unlike previous generation blast freezers, the XBF40D-MD is a plug and play requiring no customized installation and no remote compressors.
  • Trusted: All XBF40D-MD freezers are manufactured with pride with high-quality materials and high-performance technology.


  • Durable, cold-rolled steel exterior.
  • Outer door, multi-point gaskets, maximizing temperature and security.
  • Polystyrene insulated inner doors featuring rare-earth magnets.
  • High-performance, forced-air circulation.
  • Versatile cabinet interior with adjustable stainless steel shelves.
  • Standard access port.
  • Easy to use digital controller.
  • Easy to remove, washable filter.
  • Single Stage R404A air-cooled 2.5HP compressor.
  • Vacuum insulation panels and high density water-blown polyurethane foam.

Ordering Information:

  • Available in 60Hz regions only.
