CTS Hibernate-E Medium is a serum-free, nutrient basal medium for the short-term maintenance of embryonic human tissue in ambient CO2 conditions.

Quick and easy shipment of human tissues
CTS Hibernate-E Medium can be used for shipment of human embryonic tissue such as brain tumors, umbilical cords, and foreskin at ambient temperature using a simple three step process:

1) Collect tissue in a conical tube containing CTS Hibernate-E Medium (brain tumor cells require additional supplements).
2) Ship tissues in CTS Hibernate-E Medium within 24 to 72 hours on cold packs.
3) Transfer received tissues into medium of choice and initiate cultivation.
