Cell Freezing

CoolCell® alcohol-free cell freezing containers ensure standardized controlled-rate -1°C/minute cell freezing in a -80°C freezer - without alcohol or any fluids. Proven for use with a variety of cell types including stem cells, primary cells, PBMC cell lines, insect cells, yeast and others. The patent-pending CoolCell technology utilizes a thermo-conductive alloy core and highly-insulative outer material to control the rate of heat removal and provide reproducible cell cryopreservation. CoolCell units are easy to use and deliver comparable results to expensive programmable freezers.  


Cell Thawing

ThawSTAR™ transport and automated cell thawing system is a breakthrough technology to standardize cell thawing. No more swirling tubes in a water bath or rolling vials between hands to warm them up.
