Cell Line Storage in Liquid and Vapour Phase Nitrogen

Cell Line Banking and Storage

We are equipped with two liquid nitrogen repositories.  We have in-house "working" liquid nitrogen dewers and a 24 Hour monitored, automatically filled, vapour phase nitrogen facility.  Our standard practice is to store ampoules at both facilities which act as contingences for each other.

For the majority of cell lines, when producing a standard unit 1 litre culture volume, we recommend production of a Working Cell Bank (WCB) of 5 ampoules. The price for preparing the WCB is included in the unit price for 1 litre batch production.
 
We can also produce Master Cell Banks (MCBs) of 50-200 ampoules.
