cell culture cryopreservation

Good recovery relies on successful storage

Preparation is key. Improper cryogenic preservation can have disastrous outcomes, leading to poor (or no!) cell recovery and project setbacks. Review information on cryopreservation and cold storage best practices before you freeze your first vial.

Cryopreservation features


Written as a collaborative effort between authors from Thermo Fisher Scientific and American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), this comprehensive guide gives practical information on sample preparation, cryo storage, and recovery of cultured cells.


This webinar will provide detail related to cell preservation and storage considerations, as well as criteria for selecting appropriate storage tubes to meet your downstream cell culture needs.

Webinar: Choosing the right cold storage for cell culture applications

Learn how to select the best cold storage and sample prep solutions, with an eye to pertinent criteria that can lead to an optimized cell culture experience.
