Healthcare, Biotech Firms and Research Facilities Turn to PurityPlus® for More Than Specialty Gases


In a number of Mexico industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much in demand from Criogas as the specialty gases we provide.

Of course, the life sciences depend to a large extent on this type of equipment. They use it principally to preserve delicate biological materials – human tissue, stem cells, bone marrow, cord blood, and so forth. Medical and pharmaceutical laboratories especially make use of our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all sorts of medical research, including the making of vaccines. Then, as you’d expect, there are the blood banks, tissue banks, hospitals, and clinics for whom such paraphernalia are indispensable. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers are government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories that specialize in the collection, processing, inventorying, and distribution of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators come in assorted models and sizes – the better to permit long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic matter at the most beneficial temperature. The availability of differing hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other traits ensures a refrigerator for almost any cryogenic demand.

Our dewars feature vacuum-layered walls that provide outstanding thermal insulation and thus strikingly limit the rate at which their contents – either liquid nitrogen or other cryogenic matter – is lost to evaporation.

Rounding out our line of cryogenic products, we also supply Mexico life science enterprises with …

  • a high-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This device installs with no effort at all on the vent valve of these vessels to near-silently reduce the pressure of the compressed gases within. Result? Less container damage and fewer lab disturbances.
  • a variety of gas cylinder manifold options including those with automatic changeover. These systems permit a continuous flow of gas while automatically changing cylinder or bank priority from the primary source to an extra supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As crucial as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, we furnish other Mexico-area industries with these products as well. For instance, the manufacture of high-end metal products generally warrants the use of cryogenics. Utilities have a need for cryogenics too – to cool wires and aid in the smooth transmission of electric power. In the food industry, cryogenic flash-freezing helps preserve food nutrients and texture over a prolonged shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is a requisite in the development of superconductors for, say, MRI machines or use in quantum computing.

No matter your field or application, get the favored cryogenic equipment and gases for it from Criogas, your Mexico PurityPlus® Partner.
