Cryogenic storage

When failure isn’t an option

Our cryogenic storage solutions suit users of all sizes.

Ultra low temperature and cryogenic sample storage are a vital part of many bio-banks, clinics and laboratories.

They allow for the long-term storage of fragile samples like stem cells, eggs and sperm. Samples are ideally stored at temperatures below -135°C the limit at which virtually all biological functions stop. For the most important samples, this is the only way to defend against the natural breakdown of cells.

Liquid nitrogen freezers can keep samples at a temperature of -196°C near indefinitely, as long as there is a supply of LN₂.
