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


In particular Cincinnati industries, PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators and storage dewars are as much sought after from Wright Brothers as the specialty gases we manufacture.

As you’d figure, the life sciences depend very much on this sort of equipment. They use it most often to protect precious biological materials – human tissue, stem cells, bone marrow, cord blood, and such. Medical and pharmaceutical entities naturally make use of our cryogenic refrigerators and dewars for all kinds of medical research, including the creation of vaccines. Then, as you’d expect, there are the blood banks, tissue banks, hospitals, and clinics for whom this kind of equipment is vital. Other PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerator and dewar customers comprise government and university research facilities as well as various biorepositories that specialize in the collection, processing, inventorying, and dissemination of biological specimens.

PurityPlus® cryogenic refrigerators come in a variety of models and sizes – the better to facilitate long-term storage of liquid nitrogen and other cryogenic materials at the ideal temperature. The availability of various hold times, work times, evaporation rates, and other characteristics makes it clear there’s a refrigerator for almost any cryogenic demand.

Our dewars are built with vacuum-layered walls that deliver superior thermal insulation and thus significantly reduce the rate at which their contents – either liquid nitrogen or other cryogenic materials – are lost to evaporation.

In addition to these cryogenic hardware, we also supply Cincinnati life science enterprises with …

  • a high-quality whisper valve for cryogenic refrigerators and dewars. This mechanism installs effortlessly on the vent valve of these containers to quietly relieve the pressure of the compressed gases they hold. Result? Less container damage and fewer lab disruptions.
  • a variety of gas cylinder manifold alternatives including those with automatic changeover. These systems enable a continuous flow of gas while automatically changing cylinder or bank priority from the starting source to an additional supply with no fluctuation in pressure.

As indispensable as our cryogenic equipment is to healthcare, medicine, and biotechnology, other Cincinnati-area industries benefit from these products as well. Case in point: the making of high-end metal products often entails the use of cryogenics. Utilities use cryogenics too – to cool wires and aid in the smooth transmission of electric power. In the food industry, cryogenic flash-freezing helps preserve food nutrients and texture over a longer shelf life. And cryogenic freezing is essential 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 Wright Brothers, your Cincinnati PurityPlus® Partner.
