Refrigerators, Morgue

Definition : Refrigerators designed to slow decomposition of stored cadavers in the morgue either during autopsy procedures or until the cadaver is disposed of; the refrigerator usually operates at temperatures between 4 and 10 degrees Celsius (39 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit). These refrigerators typically consist of one or more chambers made with corrosion-resistant (typically stainless steel) interiors, minimizing the risk of adulteration, contamination, and/or corrosion of contents; an internal configuration appropriate for storage and easy manipulation of cadavers; a compressor, condenser, evaporator, tubing, controls, and alarms for dependable long-term storage according to morgue procedures. Morgue refrigerators are available in end-opening, side-opening, and walk-in configurations for a single cadaver or, more frequently, for two or more cadavers.
