CoolCell LX

Alcohol-free cell freezing CoolCell LX containers for 12 standard 1.0 to 2.0ml cryogenic vials ensure controlled-rate -1℃/minute cell freezing in a -80℃ freezer

  • No alcohol or fluids required
  • Consistent heat removal through the freezing period
  • Unbreakable, easy and safe to open when frozen
  • Easy and fast sample vial identification and removal
  • For use with stem cells, primary cells and cell lines
  • CoolCell controlled-rate alcohol-free cell freezing containers provide a highly reproducible -1℃/minute freezing rate when placed in a -80℃ freezer, with no alcohol or fluids required
  • The patent-pending CoolCell technology utilizes a thermo-conductive alloy core and highly-insulative outer material to control the rate of heat removal to provide reproducible cell cryopreservation
  • The insulative outer housing and thermo-conductive solid state core ensure consistent heat removal to all vials throughout the freezing period
  • CoolCell containers can replace isopropanol-based freezing containers such as Mr. Frosty by ThermoFisher Scientific and others, which can consume up to 12l per year of IPA and cost hundreds of dollars per unit per year to maintain
Key Features
Secure sample preservation
  • No variability in freeze rate, all vials have uniform freeze rate
  • Radially symmetric design ensures vial consistency
  • Numbered vial wells ensure easy sample identification
  • Quick removal of frozen vials due to exposed vial tops, and beveled junction between base and lid
Ease and safety of use
  • Unbreakable
  • Ergonomic lid comes off easily when frozen

  • No fluids (e.g. alcohol) or precooling needed, can save 12l/unit of IPA per year
  • No on-going cost due to elimination of hazardous solvents or alcohol purchase and disposal
Broad cell compatibility
  • Primary cells, including WBCs, human cardiac, muscle, mouse
  • Cell lines, including CHO, LnCap, HTB77, A549, HeLa
