Common Questions About Accucold

What type of medical refrigeration equipment does Accucold offer?

Accucold freezers are available in compact, built-in undercounter, counter-height, and ADA-height designs. Accucold refrigerators are available in the same sizes, as well as in mid- and full-size options. Units designed specifically for vaccine refrigeration, portable storage, and low-temperature freezer storage are also available. Some models provide refrigerated and frozen storage in a single unit.

What makes an Accucold refrigerator a medical refrigerator?

Accucold refrigerators have several features that set them apart from commercial refrigerators designed for non-medical purposes, including standard locks that protect samples from unauthorized access. However, the primary difference between these types of refrigeration is a medical refrigerator's temperature range. Vaccines are frequently stored between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit, which is not a typical range for commercial refrigerators used for food storage. Because medical refrigeration equipment is designed with consistency in mind, it can limit temperature fluctuations to as little as 2 degrees Fahrenheit. Medical refrigerators and freezers may also include a high-temperature alert, which is an audible alarm that sounds if the unit's interior temperature exceeds the set temperature range.

Accucold freezers and refrigerators might be marked by a black-and-white sticker reading, "For medical storage only. Not for personal use." This sign helps prevent staff members from incorrectly storing personal items such as food and beverages in a medical refrigerator.

Why do Accucold units have green-dot plugs?

Local or state laws often require equipment used in medical settings to have green-dot plugs, which may also be called medical-grade or hospital-grade power cords. These types of cords are more durable and more difficult to accidentally unplug than power cords found on standard equipment.
