We proudly offer our Cell Banking Service for your valuable human or animal cells, sourced from either patient tissues, healthy individuals, or well-established cell lines. Our commitment is to gently freeze your cells, preserving them at an ultra-low temperature in liquid nitrogen (-190°C).
Additionally, we provide the option to expand the cells to fuel your research, whenever you need it.
Depositing frozen cells serves as an ideal contingency plan in case of issues in your cell culture, be it contamination or genetic alterations during extended passages. It also offers a cost-effective alternative to ongoing cell culture. Upon request, we can establish the identity of your cells through genetic fingerprinting (STR analysis), allowing you to identify them at any time. Moreover, we conduct pre-freezing analysis for potential contaminations, especially mycoplasma, and can perform antibiotic treatment to rid the cells of mycoplasma if necessary.
Rest assured that we treat your order and cell storage with the utmost confidentiality and care.
Our service includes:
- Fixed pricing for the storage of 100 cryovials per month
- Gentle freezing process
- Confidential storage
- Cells must be tested for the absence of mycoplasma (this service can be arranged through CLS) and have a Biosafety level of 2 or below.
The following services are available for an additional fee:
- Shipment of stored cells at any time
- Cell expansion
- STR analysis
- Mycoplasma testing
- Viral testing
Trust us to safeguard your valuable cell assets and ensure their long-term viability.
