General description

The CryoStor CS2, CS5, and CS10 family of preservation solutions represents the next generation of cryopreservation media. Designed to prepare and preserve cells in ultra low temperature environments (-80 to -196 °C), CryoStor media provide a safe, protective environment for cells and tissues during thefreezing, storage, and thawing process. Through modulating the cellular biochemical response to the cryopreservation process, these media provide enhanced cell viability and functionality, while eliminating the need to include serum, proteins, or high levels of cytotoxic agents.

CryoStor CS2, CS5, and CS10 are a series of cell specific, optimized preservation media, uniquely formulated to address the molecular biological aspects of cells during the cryopreservation process; thereby, directly reducing the level of Cryopreservation-Induced Delayed-Onset Cell Death and improving post-thaw cell viability and function.

These media are recommended for the preservation of stem cells, hepatocytes, tissue samples, and other extremely sensitive cell types.


CryoStor® cell cryopreservation media has been used in the cryopreservation of Plasmodium vivax and P. falciparum sporozoites.
CryoStor CS2 is formulated to contain 2% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Suggested when reducing DMSO is of primary concern.

Hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) have traditionally been frozen using the cryoprotectant DMSO in dextran-40, saline or albumin. However, the process of freezing and thawing results in loss of HSC numbers and/or function. This study investigated the use of CryoStor for...


CryoStor® Cryopreservation Protocol

Cryopreservation efficacy which includes post-thaw recovery, viability, and functionality is of importance to both research and clinical applications. The cumulative stresses that result from the cryopreservation process and suboptimal freeze media result in cell death from necrosis and apoptosis.

Fibronectin Coating Protocol

Dilute fibronectin to the desired concentration. Optimum conditions for attachment are dependent on cell type and application. The typical coating concentration is 1 – 5 ug/cm2.Fibronectin coating protocol, products, and FAQs.
