Next to the SPL Guard Florida, SPL Guard is going to expand their portfolio with the SPL Guard Arizona and Alaska soon.
SPL Guard Arizona
The SPL Guard Arizona is a rack thawing station which quickly thaws one SBS format rack or plate and works well within automation processes. The Arizona can measure the temperature of the sample and stops when the sample has reached their desired temperature.
SPL Guard Alaska
The SPL Guard Alaska helps with the gradually freezing of samples. It freezes samples with 1 degree Celsius per minute until -80℃ and can freeze 2 racks or plates at the same time.

In this tech note, the difference in thawing of H2O samples is explained between the SPL Guard Florida and another brand. The test results show the unmatched speed and efficiency of the SPL Guard Florida compared to the other brand.
The SPL Guard Florida can thaw up to 10 racks in as little as 9 minutes and can be used as a stand-alone system or integrated into a robotic workstation like a liquid handler. When the SPL Guard Florida is fully loaded with racks, it can thaw samples 60% faster than any other instrument on the market. The SPL Guard Florida can also thaw samples at a consistent rate and temperature, guaranteeing sample quality and sample integrity for downstream research. When using the SPL Guard Florida to thaw samples, researchers can reduce uneven thawing to less than 20% per rack. For other instruments in the market, uneven thawing rates of more than 50% typically happen.
SPL Guard is dedicated to the development and production of laboratory equipment for the controlled preparation of biological samples for handling or ultra-low temperature storage. SPL Guard has specialist knowledge in the field of ‘control’ techniques that are used in the life sciences industry. The product portfolio of SPL Guard consists of instruments that prepare biological samples by air and temperature (defrost or freeze) for handling or ultra-low temperature storage. The SPL Guard Florida and Arizona are stations for controlled sample thawing, and the Alaska is an instrument for the controlled rate freezing of samples.
