Biopreserved in Home-Brew Media

Biopreserved in HypoThermosol


After three days in the cold, do your cells look like those on the left or those stored in HypoThermosol?



Will CryoStor freeze media and HypoThermosol storage media preserve cells, tissues, and organs better than your alternatives?

We have dozens of studies, tests, and reviews that say “Yes, BioLife products outperform commercially available alternatives and ‘home-brew’ biopreservation media.”

If you want to extend cell stability, improve cell viability, and lower the average cost per delivered dose of your cell therapy product (arguably the most important metric once safety and efficacy are proven), read on.
