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


In particular El Paso industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much in demand from SYOXSA, Inc. as the specialty gases we sell.

As you can imagine, the life sciences depend very much on this type of equipment. They use it primarily to safeguard precious biological materials – human tissue, stem cells, bone marrow, cord blood, and so on. Medical and pharmaceutical concerns naturally employ our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all manner 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 vital. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers consist of government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories devoted to the accumulation, processing, inventorying, and dissemination of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators come in assorted models and sizes – the better to permit long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic materials at the ideal temperature. The availability of differing hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other features ensures a refrigerator for almost any cryogenic need.

Our dewars feature vacuum-layered walls that provide superior thermal insulation and thus significantly limit the speed at which their contents – either liquid nitrogen or other cryogenic substances – are lost to evaporation.

Besides these cryogenic products, we also offer El Paso life science researchers …

  • a top-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This appliance installs with no effort at all on the vent valve of these vessels to alleviate – almost noiselessly – 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 origina[l|ting]92] source to an extra supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As crucial as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, other El Paso-area industries make use of these products as well. By way of illustration, the fabrication of high-end metal products typically necessitates 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 safeguard food nutrients and texture over an extended shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is a requisite in the production of superconductors for, say, MRI machines or use in quantum computing.

Whatever your field, whatever your application, get the preferred cryogenic equipment and gases for it from SYOXSA, Inc., your El Paso PurityPlus® Partner.
