Cryopreservation

For cryopreservation, temperature control is critical because the material you store is invaluable. Liquid nitrogen is an ideal cryogen for keeping biological samples fresh for effectively indefinite periods. Nitrogen’s ultracold temperature maintains long-term viability of cell structure and helps improve reliability, since the systems are not susceptible to electrical outages. To put us on your bid list for nitrogen supply or find out more about cryopreservation with liquid nitrogen, contact us at the office nearest your location.

Gases

FIV 1

FIV 1 is a medical device gas. It is used for in vitro fertilisation techniques to control the composition of atmospheres suitable for the preservation of cells in laboratory.

Composition: CO2: 5%; O2: 5%; N2: QS
Therapeutic Indication: The mixture 5% CO2/5% O2 in N2 is used for in vitro fertilisation techniques to enter into the composition of atmospheres suitable for the preservation of cells in laboratory.  The mixture is connected to the device chosen for the blending and control of the predetermined atmosphere.
Product Availability:  France

Nitrogen

Liquid NF and EP nitrogen provides consistent freezing below the glass transition point of -132°C. The low temperature maintains long-term viability of the cell structure and provides reliable long-term storage, since the systems are not susceptible to electrical outages. Prefreezing and refrigeration with liquid nitrogen results in increased viability and yield. It also improves performance and reliability and involves lower capital investment compared to mechanically cooled freeze-drying systems. Liquid nitrogen also results in reduced cycle times and improved solvent recovery. Available in medical grade. Our medical specialists can help you determine the optimal supply method to meet your needs.
