Locator Rack and Box Systems
From Thermo Scientific

Cryogenic Locator 8
Locator 8 Shown with Optional Thermo Scientific Transfer Vessel
  • Designed for long-term storage and easy sample retrieval
  • Indexed rack and box system allows you to find the sample needed quickly and efficiently
  • Compact size stores up to 3600 samples
  • Available with or without ultrasonic level monitor

The Locator Rack and Box Systems come in three sizes, with a top storage capacity of 3,600 vials on the Locator 4. A unique hanging rack and gridded box design allows tracking and easy retrieval of samples. The Locator Jr. and Locator 4 both use 9-by-9 box arrays to store 2.0 ml vials. The Locator 8 uses a 5-by-5 array for 2.0 ml vials. The Locator Jr. and 4 can be optionally equipped with 4" (102 mm) boxes that accommodate 5 ml vials in 9-by-9 arrays. In all units, the Thermo Scientific advanced vacuum system minimizes liquid nitrogen evaporation, and advanced insulation assures all samples are stored below -180°C even when less than 2" (51 mm) of liquid nitrogen remains in the vessel. An optional liquid nitrogen level monitor safeguards your valuable samples (see explanation following). Included in each purchase are the 2" (51 mm) box racks (see quantity on product specifications). Boxes and vials need to be purchased optionally, as do the optional 4" (102 mm) racks, boxes and vials if you desire 5 ml vial storage.

The wider-mouth Locator Jr. and Locator 4 both use 9-by-9 box arrays to store 2.0 ml vials. The smaller-mouth Locator 8 uses a 5-by-5 array for 2.0 ml vials. The Locator Jr. and 4 can be optionally equipped with 4" (102 mm) boxes that accommodate 5 ml vials in 9-by-9 arrays. In all cases, you must purchase the boxes and vials separately, as the units come equipped only with the 2" (51 mm) racks. Likewise, if you desire to use 5 ml vials and storage, you will need to purchase the 4" (102 mm) racks as well as boxes and vials from the list below.
