Healthcare, Biotech Firms and Research Facilities Turn to 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.

As you can imagine, the life sciences rely very much 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 concerns 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 vitally important. 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 beneficial temperature. The availability of different hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other traits makes it clear there’s a refrigerator for practically any cryogenic need.

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

As a complement to 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 within. 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 indispensable as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, other Springfield-area industries make use of these products as well. For example, the manufacture of high-end metal products typically involves the use of cryogenics. Utilities rely on cryogenics too – to cool wires and facilitate 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.
