Abstract: A laboratory scale liquid nitrogen freezer for food and other biological samples is described. In the apparatus, liquid nitrogen is forced under pressure through a sprayhead fitted to a plastic pipe. The sample for freezing is inserted into the pipe under the liquid nitrogen sprays. Freezing times for strawberries, mushrooms and tomato slices were 6, 4 and 2 min respectively with this system.
