Mortuaries are the most suitable place to store the dead bodies until they are not identified by the relative. The process of dead bodies freezing is used to preserve the body from decay when the burial / cremation ceremony is commenced after a few days.
In today’s time, even the hospitals have mortuary freezer box. The bodies which are awaiting identification are preserved in these boxes for a longer time.
Basically there are two types of mortuary freezer box –
1. Positive temperature – The dead body is stored in a temperature between 2 to 4 degree Celsius. At this range, the body decomposes but at a slower pace.
2. Negative temperature -The temperature of the chambers is 10 to 50-degree Celsius. This type of freezer box is used in forensic labs. The body remains completely frozen, as a result, the decomposition is nearly zero.
The mortuaries maintain the suitable environment for the dead bodies. This reduces the growth of bacteria in the body. Additionally, the anti-bacterial powder can also be utilized in these freezer boxes to stoop the pathogen from growing.
Most of the boxes available in the market are manufactured from stainless steel, with insulation and ac. They take lesser space and store the dead body safety. Thus, for hospitals and autopsy centers, the freezer box is the best choice to store dead bodies in limited space.
