As part of its ongoing effort to support the scientific community, BioCision LLC, a leader in the advanced temperature management of biomedical samples, announced the availability of free "Cool Stem Kits" to academic stem cell research programs in the U.S. and Europe. Stem cells are a promising area of research for an array of treatments and cures, but cultures require frequent handling and many labs lack the equipment needed to ensure the reproducibility required for clinical research.
“When we discovered BioCision's cryopreservation products, we were eager to incorporate them into our research protocol to further standardize our research methods. The new system has not only increased overall efficiency, it has improved cell viability post thaw.”
"Nearly everyone inside and outside of the scientific community agrees that stem cell research represents one of the most exciting and promising frontiers for treating a myriad of diseases and conditions," said Rolf Ehrhardt, CEO, BioCision. "As an innovator of sample handing, cooling and freezing products, we felt a program like this would be of great service to the stem cell community."
Each "Cool Stem Kit" includes recently launched, second generation cooling products:
