Ensure standardized, controlled-rate freezing for all cell types.

Look to Corning® CoolCell® alcohol-free freezing containers, cryogenic vials, and accessories for reproducible, controlled-rate freezing for stem cells, primary cells, cell lines, and more.

Isopropanol (IPA) containers used for cryogenic freezing require costly alcohol replacements every 5 uses, can be cumbersome to handle, and may have inconsistent freezing rates. Corning CoolCell is different, because it’s a reusable, alcohol-free way to uniformly freeze your cells at a reasonable one-time cost. With CoolCell, you can depend on high reproducibility and high cell viability, to ensure you preserve the most cells possible for your research.

Unique features of controlled-rate freezing with CoolCell include:

  • Ease of use
  • Alcohol and fluid free freezing
  • Lower cost of use than alcohol-based devices
  • High post-thaw recovery and viability
  • Proven reproducibility for a variety of cell types
  • Simple, consistent way to standardize controlled-rate freezing

Corning CoolCell: Controlled-rate, Alcohol-free Cell Freezing

Corning CoolCell alcohol-free cell freezing containers ensure standardized controlled-rate,  -1°C/minute cell freezing in a -80°C freezer—without alcohol or any fluids.
CoolCell cryogenic containers are proven for use with a variety of cell types including stem cells, primary cells, PBMC, cell lines, insect cells, yeast, and others. The patent-pending CoolCell technology utilizes a thermo-conductive alloy core and highly-insulative outer material to control the rate of heat removal and provide reproducible cell cryopreservation. CoolCell units are easy to use and deliver comparable results to expensive programmable freezers at a fraction of the cost.

Performance Test: A temperature probe was placed into a 2.0 mL cryogenic vial containing 1.0 mL of water and the tube was inserted into a room temperature CoolCell. The CoolCell was placed into a -80°C freezer and the temperature rate and profile was recorded over a 3 hour period. The test was repeated 5 consecutive times.
Conclusion: CoolCell generated identical fusion time and cooling profiles over five consecutive freeze cycles.

How it works: CoolCell LX

How it works: CoolCell LX

Obtain the ideal freezing rate for cryopreservation with CoolCell LX technology

How it works: CoolCell LX

CoolCell LX, in combination with a -80°C freezer, will provide the freezing rate of
-1°C/minute that is ideal for cryopreservation of most cells and cell lines. Using a combination of closed cell cross-linked polyethylene foam housing, a thermo-conductive alloy core, and radial vial symmetry, freezing profiles are consistent and reproducible. The low heat content also ensures that CoolCell LX containers will rapidly return to room temperature when removed from the freezer.

How it works: CoolCell FTS30

How it works: CoolCell FTS30

Achieve a uniform and reproducible freezing and thermal profile with CoolCell FTS30 technology.

How it works: CoolCell FTS30

CoolCell FTS30 has an inner vial module that holds 30 cryogenic vials and can be removed in one step. Each vial achieves a uniform and reproducible -1°C/minute freezing profile and thermal profiles are highly reproducible. CoolCell FTS30 utilizes a controlled micro-convection technology to evenly draw in -80°C freezer air through a bottom base vent, uniformly disperse the cold air around each vial in the central chamber and then release the thermal load from the vials through a top vent choke.
