Freezer in the science place

Is there a freezer to store enzymes, antibiotics, and other stuff that degrades at room temperature?
If not, is there a place to put something like this https://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-Garage-Ready-5-0-cu-ft-Manual-Defrost-Chest-Freezer-in-White-FCM5SKWW/206943512?

If you get one of those freezers, Costco has one just like it for $100 less. Just an FYI.

Ditto, except I got mine at Sam’s about 5 years ago haven’t had a problem. Mine cools to -10F.

There is a small freezer on top part of the fridge in science.

Good Idea…sounds useful. But please make sure it is cleared via proper channels, i.e. 1) if a donation (something permanently given to 'Space) then it should be cleared by the relevant committee chair – it shouldn’t just “show up”; and 2) if it is to be purchased from committee funds that cost limits are understood (https://dallasmakerspace.org/wiki/Financial_Policy_Manual#Board-set_allocation_and_authorization_limits). This item seems to be hovering/waffling around one of those breakpoints.

@mblatz I agree. I will talk to the science committee folks.

@kobin @kthompson395 are the people to ask.

They’ve got a freezer in there already.

We have a mini-fridge with a self defrosting freezer portion. It would be nice to have a -20 C manual defrost (deep freeze) to store stuff longer term. At the moment there’s no space for it but I think we could get rid of some unused items and scoot things around pretty easily. We can take a look this Sunday at 2:30.
