Corning CoolCell alcohol-free cell freezing containers ensure standardized controlled-rate -1°C/minute cell freezing in a -80°C freezer – without alcohol or any fluids. Proven for use with a variety of cell types including stem cells, primary cells, PBMC cell lines, insect cells, yeast and others. The proprietary CoolCell technology utilizes a thermo-conductive alloy core and highly-insulative outer material to control the rate of heat removal and provide reproducible cell cryopreservation. CoolCell units are easy to use and deliver comparable results to expensive programmable freezers.
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.
