Description Characteristics

The MVE XC 20 Signature Bio Dewar vessel provide a storage capacity of 1,680 straws and 210 vials. These durable and lightweight vessels are manufactured to the highest global standards, protected by the industry's longest 5-year vacuum system warranty, and can be used in difficult operating conditions.

BEND DON'T BREAK™ (There is a patent application)
The new XC 20 Signature feature is the result of two years of design testing. The upper part of the vessel has a unique shape that deforms to absorb dynamic loads in the neck area. This increases the service life of the XC 20 Signature and makes the vessel more reliable to minimize damage in the event of improper handling during transport. The curved design dampens external influences when tipping over or falling during transport, it is sufficiently resistant to possible damage, which minimizes the possibility of loss of biomaterials.

After extensive testing, the new SC 20 Signature feature will include a stronger composite neck, 20% stronger than the old design. This feature will allow the neck to be less susceptible to dynamic loads and damage during improper handling during transport, which will increase the service life of the XC 20 Signature. In combination with BEND DON'T BREAK , the function should minimize the loss of seed material as a result of damage to the vessel during transport. In addition to retaining the" shape, equipment, and functionality " of the MVE 20 Millennium design, the SEED SAFE™ feature extends the life of our Dewar vessels.

Distinctive features:

  • Designed for storing a small number of samples
  • Low liquid nitrogen consumption
  • Convenient lightweight packaging
  • The XC 20 Signature vessel has the Bend Don't Break ™ and Seed Safe ™ durability features

* The static loss rate and the static offline storage rate are nominal. The actual values will depend on the nature of the use of the tank, atmospheric conditions and production tolerances.
** Operating time (time of complete evaporation of liquid nitrogen) - an arbitrary value for evaluating the performance of the system under normal operating conditions for storing samples in the liquid phase. The actual value may vary depending on the current atmospheric conditions, the condition of the cryogenic storage facility, production tolerances, and the nature of operation.
Complies with MDD 93/42/EEC, the EU Medical Equipment Directive.
