ESPERITE is a diversified biotech global group leader in regenerative and precision medicine. Established in 2000, the holding group is headquartered in the Netherlands, listed at Euronext Amsterdam and Paris and operational in over 30 countries.

ESPERITE transforms the power of state-of-the-art technologies and scientific advancements into high quality products that bring the future of medicine to customers today at an affordable price.

CryoSave, which was acquired by ESPERITE in 2005, has fully equipped a new safe and secure sample storage BioBank in its state-of-the-art central laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland specifically designed for optimal cryopreservation of all biological samples and therefore providing peace of mind to institutional clients and families.

Sample integrity is a significant key to success in biobanking. The collection, processing and storage of biological specimens must comply with comprehensive quality management and operating procedures to assure that samples are of consistent quality for the intended analyses, study goals or future medical research. Proper control must be monitored by sample tracking and laboratory informatic systems.

That is why CryoSave (ESPERITE’s flagship company) with more than 15 years leading the Stem Cell cryopreservation industry in Europe, strives every day to continue improving its facilities and protocols to ensure the best quality and security in cryopreservation. More than 330,000 parents have placed their trust in CryoSave by storing the umbilical cord blood and tissue of their baby.

The new storage facility in Geneva, Switzerland jointly with a facility in Belgium ensures a capacity of cryopreservation for more than millions of samples.

“Our new state-of-the-art storage area allows us a capacity of cryopreservation for more than millions of biological samples to the safest and highest quality. CryoSave is always ahead with the latest in technological advancement as well as cost efficiencies inherent in our large scale, automated and high throughput laboratory in Geneva to ensure peace of mind to families and protect their baby’s future health”. – Frédéric Amar, CEO of ESPERITE
