Keep tissues and cells in a viable state during transport without using nitrogen and dry ice. Try adding ROKEPIE® to your medium and be amazed.
Are you experiencing problems with keeping tissues and cells in a viable state during transport? Wouldn’t it be great to skip the nitrogen and dry ice while still protecting your cells? Transportation of cells at 2-8°C is a new possibility, skip the nitrogen and dry ice by using ROKEPIE.
But not only cells, but other specific biological material like blood. After collecting these biological materials, ROKEPIE-FD01® can be added and the material can be transported at 2-8°C. Once arrived at its destination, follow-up isolation of specific cells from this biological material can be performed.
Transportation at low temperatures is the new middle ground in transportation of live cell cultures, avoiding the use of dry ice but still diminishing the risk of bacterial contamination. Additionally, transportation at 2-8°C is not limited to the size of a small ampoule or vial: in contrast to cryostorage, many square or cubic centimeters of flasks can be transported. This allows for time management by using any amount of cells at any place with limited resources.
This allows for time management by using any amount of cells at any place with limited resources. Use of toxic cryoprotectants like DMSO is also avoided, together with the risk of broken frozen transport material. (Note: Test whether your cell line of choice is suitable for cold-storage). The cold-storage chain is readily available at a moderate cost. This in contrast to the cost of transport at 37°C, -80°C or -196°C.
- Transportation at 4°C is readily available for a modest price.
- Large amounts of cells can be transported at once, saving time and labor.
- Avoid the use of cryoprotectants like DMSO, so no toxicity or risk of decreased viability percentages.
- Diminish the risk of leakage and breaking of frozen package material.
- Biological material can be gathered at one central location for further processing.
