Cell Banking

Cryoniss provide vapour phase liquid nitrogen (-196°C) storage, working to the principles of Good Laboratory Practice, at their world class facilities at Alderley Park. 

We provide next day dispatch and receipt of samples with our simple and streamlined processes, working with premium couriers who, like Cryoniss, place sample integrity alongside customer satisfaction, at the core of their business.  This enables our customers to either store their Master or Archival cell banks with us or utilise our services as their primary Working Bank giving the whole team daily access to samples.  We can even implement a routine quality control testing process for you, providing the assurance you need that your data is of the highest quality.

All samples are stored on our secure, fully auditable, cloud-based laboratory inventory management system, which is HIPAA compliant. Customers can have full visibility of their samples either via the provision of inventory reports, or customer portals can be generated to provide constant visibility of samples to the whole team.  Individual cell banks can also be reserved for specific members of staff if required.  There’s nothing worse than validating your high screening assay on a specific bank of cells, only to find out a colleague has used up the remaining vials of that bank to run a Western Blot and other banks for whatever reason just don’t work quite as well!

It is well documented that whilst cryopreservation remains the primary method of choice, the long-term cellular viability is dependent upon an optimised freezing, thawing and recovery process.  At Cryoniss we use the latest technologies and have optimised our cryo-handling procedures to ensure sample integrity.  These procedures include the use of liquid nitrogen adsorbed workstations and dry shippers for shipments between sites.
