We have here CRYOSTAR,model QU2195DBA from QUEUE Systems. Bought it 
through Centigrade (713/498-8686). Very good. Several lab share it, no
complains so far. It is a single compressor model, real low noise. 
Gives -95C easily. Has an internal booster which is very important for us
because of the constant power problems. Spacious, well designed.
Ice does not bild up at the rubber door seal (unlike Forma's Bio-Freezer:
one has to knock off the ice on a monthly basis).
Good luck.
