Webinar on Energy Efficiency
Ultra-low temperature freezers can use as much energy in a year as a typical American house, and are often the most energy-intensive piece of laboratory equipment used. During this webinar, James Daron of Thermo Fisher Scientific discusses the latest innovations to design the Thermo Scientific™ TSX series of ultra-low temperature freezers, and how lab users can cut energy consumption by 50% without sacrificing performance and meet facilities' energy reduction goals.

Ready for Retirement?
We're halfway through the Challenge, and we thought it would be a good time to celebrate all of the freezers and refrigerators that have been retired as a result of consolidation and space sharing. Considering how much energy these units use (see last week's blog post), together we're saving tens of thousands of kWh per year.
What will your lab do with the extra floor space left behind from your retired freezer/refrigerator? Send us your photos - the most creative use of space wins a prize!
Sharing is Caring
Whether it's a cold treat, or cold storage, sharing is caring! Sharing freezer space can make it possible for your colleagues to store samples while they defrost a freezer. And sharing freezer space long-term can save a significant amount of energy.
So this Freezer Challenge, make some space in your cold storage units to share with colleagues - and know that you're not only helping your friends, but your neighbors across the world as well.
