At 21CM, we take our science seriously. We practice it, we preach it, and we teach it -- because our clients deserve the best that modern biomedical research has to offer. And—ultimately—so do patients who deserve the best in advanced care.
A driving passion to find, develop, and implement innovative new bio preservation technologies that move the life sciences toward the goal of better patient care rests at the heart and soul of 21CM. That’s why we’re committed to providing services based on the finest science and technology in the industry. We believe that the only way to effectively deliver on the promise of these emerging technologies is by practicing high science, working with other experts, and serving our clients well.
Our reputation as an emerging leader in living systems preservation technology has attracted a scientific and medical professional staff composed of thought-leaders who are at the forefront of developing and delivering preservation solutions. It has also allowed us to develop productive research collaborations with experts in other specialized areas for the ultimate benefit of our clients.
We take great responsibility to deliver solutions that our clients can count on. We deliver our services in a timely manner and provide our clients with easy access to our scientific staff. Beyond providing top-shelf research services, we also foster a company culture where employees understand the importance of each project and the needs of the client at the end of every project.
This culture of providing superior client service not only ensures that we exceed customer expectations, but also creates a sustainable base of business that will support continued growth for our investors.
Our corporate offices and multi-million dollar research and development laboratories are now housed in a 22,000 square foot free-standing research center in Fontana, less than 50 miles from Los Angeles, California. For our clients’ convenience, we’re easily accessible via two nearby major interstate highways and the Ontario International Airport.
In order to help our clients meet their low temperature biology challenges, we continually invest in the most sophisticated laboratory tools available. Some of the many tools we use include:
electron microscopy, light/epi-fluorescent microscopic videography, cryomicroscopy, high performance liquid chromatography, fluoroscopy, EIA, flame photometry, differential scanning calorimetric, SELDI-TOF mass spectrometry, and high-speed imaging of rapid changes in membrane potential using voltage sensitive dyes.
We’ve also invented and custom fabricated a variety of new tools specifically designed to meet our clients’ research goals. They include:
The research team at 21CM has earned fundamental patents in the areas of cryopreservation, vitrification, and ice-blocker technologies that enable a broad array of profitable applications. In addition, we have filed numerous patents applications using the services of the distinguished international law firm of Foley and Lardner.
