Title
Includes gelBASE beads, non-crosslinked gel and dissolution buffer for the in situ encapsulation, storage and release of cell and virus samples.

WHY CHOOSE CYTOSTOR?

Preserve a broad range of cell types and viruses for up to 1 week*.

Move your samples across the world whilst maintaining viability, phenotype and function.

Your cells can be easily encapsulated, shipped and released cost-effectively.

QUICK AND EASY TO USE

Cells are mixed with a gel solution and then added to a vial containing gelation beads. After waiting for a few minutes, the gel will cure, encapsulating the cells in situ. The vial is sealed and ready for hypothermic storage or shipment. When ready to be used a gentle Dissolution Buffer is added to dissolve the gel. Cells can then be sedimented, resuspended and placed in culture.

ENCAPSULATION PROCESS

APPLICATIONS

 

Preserve a broad range of cell types…

Storage of human mesenchymal stromal cells (Left) and nasal airway epithelial cells (Right) in CytoStor™ results in an increase in viable cell yield of between 2- and 4-fold after 7 to 14 days’ storage at room temperature. 
 

 

…and viruses  

Storage of free viruses (Lentivirus and Coronavirus) and coronavirus-infected host cells in CytoStor™ for at 2 weeks at room temperature result in the preservation of functional viability (cytopathic effect).
