Roam refrigerators and freezers are built to travel, that is why we build them for the U.S. military. They are durable military-grade aluminum containers with miniaturized refrigeration systems built into the units allowing them to stay mobile and keep medical products and biological temperature sensitive materials safe. Handles, stackable construction, and optional wheels, batteries, and solar panels make these units the first true mobile refrigeration systems.
Roam refrigerators and freezers utilize the same core cooling system that all industry medical-grade units utilize to remove heat from inside but the parts are smaller and more compressed for Roam portable refrigeration.
Magic…..the magic of purchasing a battery that can attach to the unit to provide power. The battery just needs to be charged by a wall socket, car charger, or solar power.
The BBS100 is more costly but will last for longer periods of time. So if you anticipate being away from power for longer periods of time, it may make sense to buy the BBS100. Check out our estimates for each model on how long the BBS50 and BBS100 will last.
The units can be carried or optional wheels and carts can be added to more easily move the units around. The Dolley Trolley units are durable platforms with heavy-duty wheels that can wheel the units over a variety of surfaces. Carts are also an option if you need additional space for storage.
From a financial perspective, you would need to think through the waste caused by Igloo Coolers resulting in destroyed plasma and blood, plus the cost of dry ice, ice packs, and labor procedures associated with preparing every shipment. With a Roam unit, you know that temperature can be maintained as long as the unit has access to battery or wall power. An onboard temperature logging system allows you to know that units have maintained temperature allowing you to return to inventory in the event the product is not utilized.
Roam units are in multiple sizes allowing storage of 300mL blood bags in units ranging from 8 units to 240 units. If you need more than 240 units stored, then you should move to traditional storage refrigerators that are not portable.
No, you will need to select which you want when you order. Freezers have a different refrigerant gas so we have to get that installed at our plant in San Diego. If you order a Freezer however, it can function as a refrigerator if you want.
Heavy-duty aluminum, meeting all U.S. military standards meaning no rust and easily cleaned with harsh cleaners for sterile operating environments.
Roam freezers operate down to -20°C while the Roam refrigerators can operate from 1°C to Ambient temperature. The PlasmaRoam20 is unique in its ability to operate at -40°C for blast freezing plasma and blood units.
The units are Hazmat Certified and built with anodized aluminum which prevents them from being stained. Use your normal biohazard cleanup procedures as the storage area is sealed away from the refrigeration parts.
Yes, there is an audible alarm if the temperature gets out of the set point range. Data loggers can be used to record temperatures at all times.
Roam temperature loggers can be purchased and utilized to keep a regular digital log of the temperatures which can be downloaded to a computer via USB port.
Four—wall outlet, car outlet, battery, solar…and wind if you can find an energy generating wind mill to plug into to.
Yes, generators can power the units.
There is a power cord that connect the main Roam unit to the battery and the battery physically clips or attaches to the bottom of the Roam refrigerator or freezer.
See our chart, but essentially 18-72 hours depending on the application. Freezers last less than refrigerators and small units last longer than big units. Also, we have two sizes of batteries with the BBS100 lasting longer than the BBS50.
No, the units must be set upright to operate due to the compressor inside the unit which operates in one position.
One year for parts and one year for labor.
Yes, contact Roam for the price which depends on the period of time you would want a service contract.
Three—dolley trolley, clip-on castors, and cart.
Metal frame with castors built on the bottom, then you just set the unit on the frame so it can wheel around. The units are built to stack so you could have multiple units on a dolley trolley.
These units can be in a rain storm but can’t be submerged in water.
