Cell Therapy Systems Hibernate®-E CTS™ media is a serum-free, nutrient basal media for the short-term maintenance of embryonic tissue in ambient CO2 conditions (Ref 1). Human tissues maintained in Hibernate®-E media include brain tumors (Ref 2), umbilical cords, and foreskins.

Quick and Easy Shipment of Human Tissues
Cell Therapy Systems Hibernate®-E CTS™ media can be used for shipment of human embryonic tissue as brain tumor, umbilical cord, and foreskin at ambient temperature using a simple 3 step process:

Collect tissue in a conical tube containing Hibernate medium (brain tumor cells require additional supplements).

• Ship tissues in Hibernate® media within 24 to 72 hours on cold packs.
• Transfer received tissues into media of choice and initiate cultivation.
