CellSeal® Cryogenic Vials are the first purpose-built rigid containers used in the cell and gene therapy industry. Unlike traditional screw cap vials and stoppered vials, the hermetically sealed access ports withstand the challenges of -196°C storage without compromising CCI.

With a full suite of accessories and filling systems, vials can be filled manually or with high throughput systems- ideal for both autologous and allogeneic products.
