iPSCs and iPSC-derived cells
Do your iPSC’s or iPSC-derived cells need to get around? Would you like to transport them over the campus, to another city or even another country? Are you facing unacceptable losses in quality when receiving cells from a collaborating working group, manufacturer or other scientific partner? Meet your solution – The Cellbox® portable CO2 incubator. Specially developed for the transport of sensitive cells and cell cultures, the Cellbox® is ideal for iPSC-derived cells, such as sensory neurons, microglia and cardiomyocytes. Life Science workflows and -research demand high reproducibility and consistent results. Don’t settle for losses in cell quality, cell viability and valuable time introduced by freeze-thaw cycles that are a routine part of cryogenic-shipping. Transport your iPSC’s and iPSC-derived cells under laboratory conditions, in the Cellbox®, and avoid unwanted changes in metabolism, gene expression and protein profiles. Validated and trusted by our users, the Cellbox® will prevent unintended differentiation steps and maintain the physiological functions of the iPSC and iPSC-derived cells during every journey. Say YES to healthy & assay-ready cells.
Biobanking and long-term storage of cells
Lab-on-a-Chip and Tissue-on-a-Chip
Your product is cell-based and needs to be shipped in a ready-to-use format? You would like to seed your Lab-on-a-Chip or Tissue-on-a-Chip products with cells before shipping them? You would like to send or receive ready-to-use microfluidic chip systems?
Meet your solution – The Cellbox® portable CO2 incubator
The ideal alternative when cryopreservation and cryogenic-shipping is not possible. Simply seed microfluidic chips with living cells and ship them under laboratory conditions in the Cellbox®.
Organ-on-a-chip technologies are quickly gaining traction as an alternative to animal testing. The benefits are obvious, because these systems offer an in-vitro testing environment that closely mimics in vivo physiological conditions. The higher complexity of these systems however results in no to low compatibility with cryogenic preservation and temperature-controlled shipping. Break down these geographical barriers and ship your microfluidic chip systems worldwide in the Cellbox®.
Say YES to ready-to-use Organ-on-a-Chip systems.
