I-cup Chilling Chamber

The i-cup is a portable, non-electric vial chiller used to refrigerate urine as it is collected and maintain it below 4°C throughout the day or overnight. It was developed for metabolic collections with the BASi Culex ® automated blood sampling system but can be used anywhere liquids need to be kept cold for extended periods.

Simply place the i-cup in a -80°C freezer for 6 hours or -20°C freezer for 30 hours. Remove the i-cup from the freezer and it will keep your liquids cold for a minimum of 16 hours.

The new larger cold well now accommodates 50 mL tri-pour beakers, 42 mL capped urine collection vials, as well as 20 mL scintillation vials.
