We are getting your cells home safely

Cellbox Solutions is a young technology company situated in Northern Germany that focuses on innovative logistic solutions for the global BioMed industry. The product, a portable CO2 incubator provides a safe environment for the transport of living cells and biological structures under laboratory conditions. The initial idea to develop a portable CO2 incubator was born at the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Marine Biotechnology and Cell Technology (EMB) in Lübeck. Back then, the scientists were facing a well-known challenge: they had to transport slices of cardiomyocytes and were in need of a suitable transport device that would allow them to ship the cells under optimal conditions, e.g. at 37° and 5% CO2. A few years went by before Prof. Dr. Kathrin Adlkofer joined the Fraunhofer EMB and quickly realised the potential impact that such an incubator could have on

global cell logistics. A team of dedicated engineers and biologists was assembled and a new development project was created; from idea to marketable product – Cellbox®; . Within 18 months the first prototype of the Cellbox®; was developed and ready for intensive trials. Today, the focus is on our Cellbox® customers. We aim to find solutions to each and every cell transport challenge. We put strong emphasis on honest feedback, to continuously improve and provide the best customer experience possible. The development and assembly of our products were carried out in close collaboration with the Fraunhofer EMB and financially supported by the European Union – European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Federal Government and Land Schleswig-Holstein.

Cellbox Solutions was founded

In 2017, Cellbox Solutions was founded. Anticipating the potential impact of the concept, Prof. Dr. Kathrin Adlkofer initiated the project to develop a market-ready product.


Rendering of Cellbox CDI

First prototype of Cellbox® flight CDI was launched

The Cellbox®; flight CDI is designed to serve the increasing number of consortia, business relationships and networks operating across countries and continents that require CO2 conditioned shipping devices designed for long-haul international flights. This version of the Cellbox®; uses dry ice as the CO2 source and was awarded an international flight allowance in compliance with IATA regulations.


Rendering of Cellbox CD

First prototype of Cellbox® ground CD was launched

Engineered to serve as a ground transport device on the road, by rail or by sea, the Cellbox®; ground CD is equipped with a disposable CO2 cartridge and can maintain a 5% CO2 environment for up to 72 hours.


The best is yet to come

We work hard to constantly feed our innovation pipeline. Stay tuned for the launch of new Cellbox®; ideas!
