-86°C Ultra-Low Temperature Upright Freezer
MDF-U56VC-PA
18.6 cu.ft. | 526 L
Panasonic’s VIP Series ultra-low temperature freezers are designed for
safe, reliable storage of biologicals. Energy efficiency in VIP Series freezers
is achieved through balanced temperature performance and power
management. The advanced combination of cabinet design, electronics,
refrigeration and critical components are engineered for enhanced security,
performance and reliability.
Reliability
You Can Count On
Maximum Storage,
Minimal Footprint
The robust refrigeration system is
powered by Panasonic engineered
compressors. The system provides
dependable cooling by balancing
temperature performance and
energy management. Reserve
refrigeration power assures exceptional temperature recovery following door openings. VIP freezers have
demonstrated >99% reliability with
excellent performance history.
The upright freezer employs a
patented VIP insulation composite
that maximizes space efficiency
and holds up to 384 2" boxes or 256
3" boxes within a 7.22 ft2 (0.67 m2)
footprint.
The combination of patented VIP
vacuum insulation panels with
Panasonic designed compressors,
specific to ultra-low temperature
applications, assures superior
uniformity (+/- 5°C) throughout the
cabinet to maintain the integrity of
the samples.

Optimum Sample Storage
Extra Protection, Easy Access
This space saving cabinet design
offers a reduced wall thickness for
maximum interior volume. Ideal
for storage of DNA, RNA and other
biological samples.
The stainless steel framed, insulated
inner doors with gasket seal firmly
against the cabinet to help minimize
change in interior temperatures
during routine door openings. Inner
door latches feature an ergonomic
design for one-handed operation.
Integrated microprocessorbased controller and LED display
include comprehensive setpoint,
alarms, monitoring, diagnostic and
communication features.*
*Control panel color & appearance may vary
per equipment model.

Insulated Panels
Inside-out engineering starts
with a patented VIP insulation
composite which results in
an efficient, thin-wall cabinet.
Insulated inner doors improve
temperature uniformity, minimize
cold air loss during door
openings and extend warm-up
times during power outages.
