Low Temperature Storage (
(Sanyo, Japan)

Buffers, solutions and bacterial cells need to be stored in low temperature to prevent contaminations. To maintain constant low temperature, they are stored in frost-free refrigerators.  This is because, unlike the direct-cool refrigerators popularly used in home, the technology of the frost free refrigerator helps to maintain a more consistent temperature. We use the low temperature storage facility for running some experiments like electrophoresis of enzymes in native PAGE and also for chromatography separation of enzymes and thermo-labile proteins. If we need to run more experiments at low temperature, a walk in cold-room facility is also available.
