Liquid Cooling Systems for Efficient Temperature Control of Medical Diagnostics


One critical element of today’s diagnostic equipment is its cooling system. The cooling system prevents overheating, which can cause equipment to malfunction. Additionally, cooling solutions help maintain thermal stability of lab instrumentation, which is necessary for high-quality results. Considering the importance of medical imaging and diagnostic tests to monitor and maintain patients’ health, the equipment and the lab must be thermally maintained to ensure equipment consistently meets stated performance expectations.

 





Online Thermoelectric Modelling Tool for PCR Design Engineers


Laird Thermal Systems has launched an online simulation tool for PCR thermal cycling applications. Thermoelectric coolers produced for thermal cycling, such as the PowerCycling PCX Series, are utilised for Real-Time PCR to precisely temperature control DNA amplification to three temperature set points. Constructed with next-generation thermoelectric material, the series offers faster ramp rates and higher reliability than conventional thermoelectric coolers to notably extend field use of molecular diagnostic devices.





Nextreme™ Performance Chillers Offer Energy Savings up to 50%


Modern laboratory equipment requires precise cooling to protect electronics or to control processes where temperature matters. Laird Thermal Systems’ Nextreme™ Performance Chiller Series offers reliable, precise, and versatile temperature control solutions for laboratory equipment – all while lowering energy consumption by up to 50% compared to conventional compressor-based systems. High quality components, including variable speed motors for the compressor and condensing fan, provides lower noise operation and a higher coefficient of performance compared to competing models.





Thermoelectric coolers boost reliability


PowerCycling PCX Series thermoelectric coolers provide high reliability for demanding thermal cycling applications. Product series is designed to handle hundreds of thousands of thermal cycles, providing improved performance and long-life operation in testing applications. Products offer a robust construction with a flexible thermally conductive ‘soft layer’ to reduce mechanical stresses in thermal cycling applications. Devices extend the mean time between failure (MTBF) of point of care equipment, lowering the total cost of ownership.





PowerCycling PCX thermoelectric coolers for PCR tests


Point-of-care testing allows medical staff to accurately achieve real-time diagnostic results within an hour, rather than days. PCR-based point of care testing is considered the gold standard for diagnosing COVID-19 because it provides the fastest and most accurate test results. Portable point of care testing (POCT) equipment requires a sophisticated thermal management solution that can withstand mechanical stresses induced by rapid temperature changes.
