CoolCell FTS30 utilizes a solid state core and controlled microconvection technology to evenly draw in -80°C freezer air through a bottom base vent, uniformly disperse the cold air around each vial in the central chamber and then release the thermal load from the vials through a top vent choke. The inner vial module holds 30 cryogenic vials and can be removed in one step. Each vial achieves a uniform and reproducible -1°C/minute freezing profile and thermal profiles are highly reproducible. Due to the low thermal mass of the uniform-density cross-linked polyethylene foam container, freezing can be conducted without a rise in local freezer temperature, thereby protecting nearby samples.
Corning CoolCell, in combination with a -80°C freezer, will provide alcohol-free freezing at the rate of -1°C/minute that is ideal for cryopreservation of most cells and cell lines. Using a combination of uniform-density cross-linked polyethylene foam, a solid state core, and radial vial symmetry, freezing profiles are consistent and reproducible. The foam is non-absorbent and will impose negligible change in the freezer environment; thereby protecting nearby frozen samples. The removal of vials is accomplished by tipping the device upside down so the vials slide out.
