Liquid nitrogen serves as an exceptional tool for medicine, research and laboratory experiments. Medical professionals use LN2 for cryopreservation of blood, organs, or other biological fluids and for the freeze therapy of warts or other skin conditions. It also provides us with the opportunity to observe and investigate the many different changes that take place when matter is cooled to extremely low temperatures. There are some other uses of LN2 for personal uses. For example, you can use it for gardening. Simply spray the weeds around your favorite flowers or vegetables and freeze them solid. Smash them into healthy organic fertilizer and mulch for your garden. This is an environment-friendly way to fight those troublesome weeds.
Note: These tanks are shipped empty. Customer will need to obtain own Liquid Nitrogen. Liquid Nitrogen is extremely cold and if it touches your skin, you will be burned. Please consider buying Cryogenic Protective Gloves which are offered on our website.
