The Cellbox Flight CDI, is the first cell shipping CO2 incubator that has been awarded an international flight allowance. It provides lab-like incubation conditions during transport – by road, rail, sea and even air. Our Cellbox is completely self-sufficient, because of an integrated rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack (4 x 99,6 Wh) and a CO2 conditioning system that relies on dry-ice sublimation. The device is simple to use and the internal parameters can be programmed by the user. At standard incubation conditions of 37°C and 5% CO2, we guarantee an operating time of 24 hours at an ambient temperature of 23°C. Data logs of the internal conditions are continuously collected and can easily be exported to an iOS smart device with Bluetooth connectivity using our Cellbox App. By providing the ideal transport conditions, the Cellbox eliminates the risk of changing the biology of cell structures and maintains the high quality of your passengers.

Loss of valuable cells due to incorrect handling and suboptimal transport conditions is now a thing of the past – ship your assays ready-to-use!


Cellbox Flight CDI – The first in a new generation of active temperature-controlled and CO2 conditioned shipping incubators. Challenge the status quo and choose live cell shipping.
Traditionally, cells and other biological material have been stored and transported at low to cryogenic temperatures. However, there are applications where cryopreservation is incompatible or where cell recovery rates are unsatisfactory. Cellbox addresses these challenges by providing an environment where cells can be kept at user-defined incubation conditions in transit. Transit times in excess of 24 hours can be expected at an incubation temperature of 37°C and a CO2 concentration of 5%. When the shipment is handled by a specialty logistics provider, this transit period can be extended up to 48 hours, ensuring that your valuable cells can reach nearly any destination worldwide.

"We transported samples of CAR regulatory T cells from Nice/France to a collaboration partner in Lübeck/Germany. The cells arrived after ~36 hours of transfer in perfect condition. Cellbox allows us to transfer living samples to CROs/Collaboration partners without the need to establish a freezing process, which is especially in small scale very challenging."
