The unique fully secured system for storage in liquid nitrogen. Description / Use

Maintaining sample integrity during cryopreservation is a key consideration for research success, today and for the future.
Since its founding, Cryo Bio System has been committed to developing products which help facilitate the highest quality and security of biological samples during cryopreservation.

The micro-aspirator is used to manually fill all straws manufactured by Cryo Bio System without any risk of contamination.

CBS High Security straws are placed in goblets for storage in freezers. Goblets come in 8 different colors and their sub-compartments (called visotubes) in 12 different colors.
In the Daisy configuration, goblets hold 12 visotubes of different colors and can hold a maximum of 168 straws of 0.3 ml or 0.5 mL. 

  • Diameter: 65 mm (67 mm with cover)
  • Goblet height: 117 mm
  • Total height of Daisy goblet (with cover): 135 mm
  • Visotubes height: 120 mm
  • Height of visotube diameter 17.5 mm: 133 mm

Cryo Bio System canisters are the sleeves that hold the goblets. They are compatible with all types of liquid nitrogen and vapor freezers, and also low-temperature mechanical freezers.
Five lengths of canisters are available, with a capacity of 2 to 6 goblets stored on top of each other. A colored flag can be placed on the lifter to facilitate retrieval.

CBS High Security straws are designed for cryopreservation of liquid biological samples such as plasma, serum, buffy coat, red blood cells, extracted DNA, urine, mouth wash, cell suspensions, bacterial or viral strains, gametes, embryos and gonadic tissue.

There are two different volumes available: 0.3 and 0.5 ml.

Straw technology concept

New CBS High security patented straw using a new technology of a plastic envelop on the ionomeric resin of the straw which enables an extension of the printing length. Available in 8 different colors.
Dimensions, internal and external are identical to the CBS straw, inside material same as the CBS straw. Two different volumes available: 0.3 and 0.5 mL.

Instruments for straws & tubes

An automatic system for packaging and identification of biological samples.

From an open primary sample tube, MAPI automatically fills CBSTM 0.3 or 0.5 mL straws, thermally seals both ends, prints bar codes and/or alphanumerical identification on the jacket and in-line validates the process by immediate bar code reading.

The MAPI system consists of the filling robot and its control box, a special ink-jet type printer and a PC with the MAPI pilot software. The automate is placed on a special laboratory bench at ergonomical height.
