Entegris and HOF begin Partnership to bring Added Value to Biopharm Bulk Drug Substance, Cold Storage, and Transport

Entegris is proud to announce a new relationship with HOF Sonderanlagenbau GmbH, an international provider of freeze/thaw equipment and special solutions for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors. Entegris offers the best-in-class Aramus™ bag for robust cold storage and transport. 

Collaborating with HOF enables Entegris to offer a combined solution for our customers that accelerate the freeze/thaw process and help showcase our new Life Sciences Technology Center, built to offer customers the opportunity to leverage our cold-chain supply expertise to optimize processes, reduce costs, and increase speed to market.


Having the HOF freeze/thaw unit placed within the Life Science Technology Center enables our customers the possibility of finding the best available solution for their individual process. This partnership increases our leading position in the market and facilitates US-based customers getting in touch with our equipment and identifying their unique single-use solution.

Our new Life Sciences Technology Center, located in Billerica, MA, will feature HOF freezers and offers life sciences customers the opportunity to leverage our expertise on cold-chain supply challenges to optimize processes, reduce costs, and increase speed-to-market. The world-class laboratory brings our tools and technologies together in one place, where customers can test equipment for freeze/thaw processes to determine which products best fit their needs.

We have developed a broad component ecosystem that can be configured to manage the most demanding process needs, and we’re excited to maximize the freeze/thaw benefits for the customer in our new partnership with HOF Freezers.

Tiger Yield: The Importance of FOUP Maintenance

To wrap up the Year of the Tiger (2022), there are still lessons to be learned from the animal kingdom. A tiger out in the open roaming the savannah is at risk of injuries from predators, including human hunters. Wafers left out in the open in a fab are susceptible to damage that can cause dramatic yield drops. The larger the wafer diameter, the greater the risk.

From Penn State to Cold Storage Pioneer: Solving Life Sciences Problems Through a Pattern of Innovation

As the chief technologist for the Life Sciences Division at Trane Technologies, Scott Farrar knows a thing or two about ultra-low temperature control for the life sciences industry, perhaps drawing inspiration from his days at Penn State University enjoying peach ice cream. Scott’s biggest inspiration, however, was his entrepreneurial dad who started a solar equipment company, teaching Scott from a young age the importance of sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and solving problems. Scott carried those tools with him, and upon completing his formal education, went to work for a pharmaceutical manufacturing company in research and development, specializing in low-temp freezers and incubators as well as heat-momentum and mass-transfer-type processes for the pharmaceutical industry. His exposure to dilemmas and investigative approach is what drove him to create better customer experiences.
