Ultra-low temperature or ULT freezers are an extremely advanced system with temperature capacity ranging from - 45°C to - 86°C and the inner volume of the ULT freezers is in general between 300 and 800 liters. Ultra-low temperature freezers are of two types Upright ULT freezers and Chest ULT freezers. Samples in ultra-low temperature freezers are typically stored in polymer tubes or microtubes. Rising incidences of infectious diseases, cancer, and other chronic diseases have led to new drug discovery or development thereby stimulating demand for ultra-low temperature freezers (ULTF).
Demand for ultra-low temperature freezers (ULTF) is high in the field of research and development and in the biobanks for the storage and protection of drugs, enzymes, chemicals, viruses, bacteria, cell preparations, and tissue samples.
According to the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations (IFPMA), more than 7,000 medicines are in development worldwide in the year 2017, 208 drugs for HIV/AIDS, 1,919 drugs for cancer, 401 drugs for diabetes and 563 drugs for cardiovascular diseases, etc. Advancement in drug discovery and clinical testing and rising incidences of cancer and other infectious diseases are the key driving factors in the ultra-low temperature freezers market.
