Our technology allows our customers to store and transport their cells at room temperature, protected inside a cushion of alginate gel.

The cells are ‘encapsulated’ in beads or in plates by a quick, cell-friendly process and then stored, without the need for any human interaction while they’re quiescent. They’re recovered when needed again by dissolving the gel in a gentle buffer for just a few minutes. 

The solutions are discarded, fresh media is added, and the cells are available and ready for use.

We provide you with kits that contain all the components you need for forming and dissolving the gels – you just provide your cells and media.
