Healthcare, Biotech Firms and Research Facilities Rely on PurityPlus® for More Than Specialty Gases


In certain Springfield industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much in demand from ILMO Products Company as the specialty gases we provide.

Of course, the life sciences rely to a great extent on this type of equipment. They use it most often to protect precious biological materials – human tissue, stem cells, bone marrow, cord blood, and the like. Medical and pharmaceutical enterprises specifically use our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all kinds of medical research, including the making of vaccines. Then, as you’d expect, there are the blood banks, tissue banks, hospitals, and clinics for whom such tools are indispensable. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers consist of government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories dedicated to the accumulation, processing, inventorying, and dissemination of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators are offered in numerous models and sizes – the better to facilitate long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic substances at the most propitious temperature. The availability of various hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other traits makes it clear there’s a refrigerator for virtually any cryogenic need.

Our dewars feature vacuum-layered walls that provide outstanding thermal insulation and thus considerably lower the speed at which their contents – either liquid nitrogen or other cryogenic matter – is lost to evaporation.

Besides these cryogenic products, we also provide Springfield life science firms with …

  • a high-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This mechanism installs easily on the vent valve of these containers to quietly reduce the pressure of the compressed gases inside. Result? Less container damage and fewer lab disturbances.
  • a selection of gas cylinder manifold options including those with automatic changeover. These systems permit a continuous flow of gas while automatically changing cylinder or bank priority from the starting source to an extra supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As necessary as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, we furnish other Springfield-area industries with these products as well. Case in point: the manufacture of high-end metal products typically involves the use of cryogenics. Utilities rely on cryogenics too – to cool wires and help with the smooth transmission of electric power. In the food industry, cryogenic flash-freezing helps protect food nutrients and texture over an extended shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is pretty much mandatory in the development of superconductors for, say, MRI machines or use in quantum computing.

Regardless of your field or application, get the favored cryogenic equipment and gases for it from ILMO Products Company, your Springfield PurityPlus® Partner.
