Cells can only be stored frozen in suspension, and must be cultured and prepared every time you want to run an experiment.
We have spent the last decade researching macromolecular cryoprotectants - these materials can cryopreserve plated, adhered cells.
Frozen cells in a thaw and test format. No end user cell expansion or culturing required.
CryoLogyx uses a range of proprietary cryoprotectants, developed over several years at the University of Warwick, to achieve unique cryopreservation outcomes and make new frozen products and services.
Our cryoprotectants are based on large molecules similar to proteins. These are know as Macromolecualr Cryoprotectants, and more closely mimic the structure and function of biomacromolecules used by extremophiles - animals and plants that survive and thrive in extreme enviroments.
This suite of proprietary cryoprotectant materials, which we call CryoShield, enables very high cell recoveries and allows us to cryopreserve cells in non standard formats.
You can find out more about CryoShield by downloading our latested white papers, or by contacting us directly.
