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 the freezing, 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.

Application

CryoStor, a series of cell-specific, optimized preservation media, is uniquely formulated to address the molecularbiological 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.
Cryostor CS5 is formulated to contain 5% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Recommended for cryopreservation of most cell types.

Protocols

Cryopreservation affects post-thaw recovery, viability, and functionality. Stress during freezing and suboptimal media lead to cell death.
