Ultra-low Temperature Freezers Have Become Important for Today’s Cell and Gene Therapies

Ultra-low Temperature Freezers Have Become Important for Today’s Cell and Gene Therapies

Ultra-Low Temperature Freezers (ULTs) can make an important contribution in the field of cell and gene therapies. For a long time, complex cryopreservation with liquid nitrogen was the standard for freezing all therapeutic substances. However, studies show that some...
Cold Chain Best Laboratory Practices for Biobanking

Cold Chain Best Laboratory Practices for Biobanking

I always understood that a biobank is not an investigation laboratory practice but rather an investigative support service. For this reason, process control is a requirement for any installations where biological samples are collected, processed, stored, and distributed. To have...

Cryopreservation Can Save the World's Rarest Species from Extinction

Cryopreservation and Biobanking Could Save the World’s Rarest Species from Extinction

Scientists at the Chester Zoo in the UK have teamed up with some of the UK’s leading animal reproduction experts and founded Nature’s SAFE, which stands for Saving Animals From Extinction. Nature’s SAFE is one of Europe’s largest living...
How to Preserve the Integrity of Blood Samples with a Reliable Cold Chain

How to Preserve the Integrity of Blood Samples with a Reliable Cold Chain

Blood samples contain numerous components such as red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. To ensure the integrity of stored whole blood samples, it is important that the collection, processing, and storage of these components are performed...
Biobanks can use slow freezing, rapid cooling or vitrification to cryopreserve and biobank mouse embryos.

Biobanking Science: Cryopreserving Mouse Embryos

The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) is one of the biggest suppliers of transgenic mice for biomedical research. JAX has a large biobank that cryopreserves and recovers thousands of different mouse strains. Biobanking mouse strains has many benefits for researchers. Biobanking...
