BOSTON, July 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For two centuries or more, inventors have been trying to perfect refrigeration technology.  Now the unprecedented is happening with Phononic's unveiling of the Evolve™ compact freezer – a compressor-free, pharmacy-grade cold storage unit.  The 1.8 cubic foot freezer, on display at booth #929 at the ASHE Conference and Exhibition in Boston through July 14, features proprietary SilverCore™ solid-state technology that ensures consistent temperature stability and reliable performance.  By efficiently moving particles of heat known as phonons via non-toxic coolant, SilverCore technology is revolutionizing the ability to create cold temperatures.

"Our solid-state technology achieves freezer performance thought impossible from a solid-state solution, represents a refrigeration milestone and meets the demanding requirements of healthcare professionals," said Tony Atti, founder and CEO of Phononic.  "Our commitment to disrupting the decades-old compressor paradigm will help further life-changing research and stop putting vital inventory at risk."

Whether testing blood and tissue specimens for biomarkers to discover early stage cancer; storing sensitive drugs and vaccines in the supply chain; or protecting costly reagents and enzymes used in genomics testing, the Evolve product family offers a state-of-the-art solution and significant advantages for pharmacy managers, lab managers and other healthcare professionals. The Evolve compact freezer, suitable for benchtop use or work stations, meets their exacting requirements by ensuring precise, stable and uniform temperatures between minus 15 and minus 25 C in normal ambient working environments and even up to 32 C. Additionally, with an integrated and WiFi-connected monitoring solution, the Evolve unit provides a live status report on temperature conditions, sending alerts to mobile devices or the web forewarning of temperature deviations that can prevent material losses collectively costing millions of dollars annually.

"Evolve consumes significantly lower energy than a compressor-based system," said Mike Demasi, vice president and general manager of Phononic's Cold Products business. "And because it's so energy efficient, it can run on a battery backup power supply for several hours, adding even more peace of mind for our customers in hurricane prone regions of the US or countries with inconsistent supplies of power."

Pre-orders are now being taken for the Evolve freezer with production planned for late 2015.
