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


In certain Mexico industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much in demand from AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. as the specialty gases we manufacture.

Of course, the life sciences rely very much on this sort of equipment. They use it most often to maintain precious biological materials – human tissue, stem cells, bone marrow, cord blood, and such. Medical and pharmaceutical entities naturally make use of our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all kinds of medical research, including the creation of vaccines. Then, as you’d expect, there are the blood banks, tissue banks, hospitals, and clinics for whom this sort of equipment is crucial. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers include government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories that specialize in the collection, processing, inventorying, and dispensation of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators are available in numerous models and sizes – the better to enable long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic matter at the proper temperature. The availability of various hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other attributes ensures a refrigerator for almost any cryogenic demand.

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

Rounding out our line of cryogenic hardware, we also offer Mexico life science firms …

  • a top-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This device installs with no effort at all on the vent valve of these containers to quietly alleviate the pressure of the compressed gases they hold. Result? Less container damage and fewer lab hassles.
  • a variety of gas cylinder manifold alternatives including those with automatic changeover. These systems enable a continuous flow of gas while automatically changing cylinder or bank priority from the first source to an auxilliary supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As essential as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, other Mexico-area industries benefit from these products as well. Case in point: the making of high-end metal products generally necessitates the use of cryogenics. Utilities make use of cryogenics too – to cool wires and aid in the smooth transmission of electric power. In the food industry, cryogenic flash-freezing helps safeguard food nutrients and texture over a longer shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is essential in the development of superconductors for, say, MRI machines or use in quantum computing.
