Helmer Scientific Laboratory-Grade Refrigerators Recognized as Meeting New ENERGY STAR Standards

Share Article

Newly released ENERGY STAR® specifications for laboratory-grade refrigerators allow clinicians and researchers to reduce the environmental footprint of their operations by selecting certified energy-efficient refrigerators.

Helmer Scientific medical-grade blood bank, laboratory, and pharmacy refrigerators have been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as meeting new ENERGY STAR® standards. The EPA recently finalized the first ENERGY STAR® specifications for laboratory refrigerators to help facilities identify products that can reduce energy utilization and life-time costs related to this critical category of equipment. This new ENERGY STAR® standard identifies the most efficient laboratory refrigerators that are commonly used across hospitals, clinics, and research institutions to store life-saving blood products, reagents, patient samples, and medications/vaccines.

Helmer Scientific medical-grade refrigerators are available in a wide range of models to meet capacity needs across clinical and research applications. In May 2017 Helmer Scientific submitted energy and performance data to the EPA for certain models. These data were generated by an independent testing lab according to ENERGY STAR specifications and applies to products designed for demanding laboratory, blood bank and pharmacy environments.
