Features

  • Large storage capacity
  • Rugged Construction – ribbed high strength aluminum body, magniformed necktube design, and more durable paint

  • Superior vacuum performance with super insulation provides maximum holding times
  • Security – Lockable lid and optional low-level alarm with remote connection available
  • Mobility – Roller bases are available for all models

Choice of container is determined by two factors:

  • Storage capacity of semen in straws
    A larger neck diameter on the container is necessary for increased storage capacity. The containers are commonly used in European livestock breeding (medium/small) have a neck diameter that does not exceed 50mm.
  • Holding time of liquid nitrogen inside the container
    Holding time is chosen in relation to the minor or major difficulties of tracing liquid nitrogen. In the liquid nitrogen supply network in the UK is very good so for this reason 20 litre containers are most commonly used.

You can also choose from:

  • Single Layer – allows easy selection of straws.
  • Double layer – storage only
