21st Century Medicine

It's a matter of time.

21st Century Medicine has developed an entire platform technology focused on the creation and commercialization of hypothermic preservation and cryopreservation techniques, especially by vitrification.

These developments have taken science far beyond today’s preservation limits. 21CM scientists have proven that long-term preservation of complex living systems is possible.

So, what does all this mean?

It means that a vital link has been created in the biotechnology supply chain.

Biopharmaceutical companies get a larger window in which to test new drugs on viable tissue slices.

In assisted reproductive medicine, fertilization by safer, less expensive and intensive methods is possible because damage to fragile cells is minimized or totally eliminated.

And soon, organ banks can actually start banking organs.

In fact, 21CM’s custom preservation protocols, solutions, and devices support clients across a diverse range of natural and bio artificial applications including everything from the natural survival of Alaskan beetles to long-term storage of human corneas, and from revival of Hawaiian coral to transportation of human skin cells.

From reliable and responsive contract research to innovative process solutions, 21st Century Medicine can help resolve most time-sensitive biologistical problems faced by researchers and producers of living tissue products today.

21CM is currently working on applications in the following areas:


Bio Pharmaceutical

Designing preservation systems to provide viable tissue slice products in support of drug discovery platforms, lead optimization technologies, and ADME/Toxicology studies.


Creating hypothermic solutions and protocols that better preserve transplantable organs in a viable state between collection and implantation while developing cryothermic vitrification protocols that will eventually allow true cryogenic organ banking

Assisted Reproductive Technology

Inventing ice-free cryopreservation methods that minimize or eliminate damage to reproductive tissue while allowing for the creation of human ova banks to mirror the sperm banks that have been commonplace for many years.

Unlimited Potential

Solving all preservation challenges. No matter how daring or arcane.
