CRYOPRESERVATION UNIT FOR TISSUE CELL SAMPLES
Tissue cell therapy products need to be stored in cryogenic conditions – close to liquid nitrogen temperatures (-196°)- for durable preservation, following a controlled cooling process to ensure cell survival.
IDOM, in collaboration with CEIT and HISTOCELL, has developed the design of automated equipment for the cryopreservation of tissue cell samples that integrates the two main functions required for cell cryopreservation in an interrupted process:- a continuous controlled cooling based on a customized chilling curve and the subsequent storage in liquid nitrogen vapour without the need of human intervention throughout the process.
IDOM has also fabricated and verified the design and system automation functionality of an early cryopreservation prototype.
