Amsterdam, the Netherlands - 13 September 2018

Sample integrity is a significant key to success in biobanking. The collection, processing and storage of biological specimens must comply to a comprehensive quality management and operating procedures to assure that samples are of consistent quality for the intended analyses, study goals or future medical research. Proper control must be monitored by sample tracking and laboratory informatic systems.

That is why CryoSave (Esperite's flagship company) with more than 15 years leading the Stem Cell cryopreservation industry in Europe, strives every day to continue improving its facilities and protocols to ensure the best quality and security in cryopreservation. More than 330'000 parents have placed their trust on us by storing the umbilical cord blood and tissue of their baby.

The new storage facility in Geneva, Switzerland jointly with our facility in Belgium ensures a capacity of cryopreservation for more than millions of samples. 

Our closed and fully automated processing system uses the liquid nitrogen vapor storage method that allows frozen sample storage at liquid nitrogen temperatures preventing direct contact for more security.

This innovative design provides storage temperatures in a range of -190 degree Celsius with absolutely no liquid nitrogen in the sample storage space, making the most efficient use of capacity. This technique achieves extreme low temperatures to prevent the loss of genetic diversity in the preserved sample and avoids any risk of cross-contamination.

Our scientists and lab technicians are constantly improving our processing and storage protocols and techniques to increase the quality of the samples we store.

CryoSave's long established professionalism and expertise allows to offer a unique quality stem cell storage service with exclusive advantages.
