cell sample box / freezing
CoolCell controlled-rate alcohol-free cell freezing containers provide a highly reproducible -1℃/minute freezing rate when placed in a -80℃ freezer. No alcohol or fluids required. The insulative outer housing and thermo-conductive solid state core ensure consistent heat removal to all vials throughout the freezing period. CoolCell freezing containers are unbreakable, open easily when frozen, and are not cold to the touch when frozen - no "frosty" fingers. Numbered vial wells ensure easy sample identification. The beveled junction between base and lid and exposed vial tops in the base allow for quick and safe removal of frozen vials so they can be placed into long-term storage. Proven for use with stem cells, primary cells and cell lines.
The patent-pending CoolCell technology utilizes a thermo-conductive alloy core and highly-insulative outer material to control the rate of heat removal to provide reproducible cell cryopreservation. CoolCell units are easy to use and deliver comparable results to expensive programmable freezers. Simply fill with vials and place in a -80℃ freezer for 4 hours.
CoolCell containers can replace isopropanol-based freezing containers such as Mr. Frosty by ThermoFisher Scientific and others, which can consume up to 12L per year of IPA and cost hundreds of dollars per unit per year to maintain. The CoolCell containers instantly save money and eliminate hazardous solvents from the cell cryopreservation process.
No alcohol: no fluids or precooling, can save 12 L/unit of IPA per year
No variability: all vials have uniform freeze rate, radially symmetric design ensures vial consistency
