21st Century Medicine --Expanding the Boundaries of Preservation Science

Technology Solutions

In addition to creating custom vitrification and hypothermic solutions for customer specific applications, we have developed a family of solutions that include ice blocking agents, ice crystal suppression polymers and heart resuscitation solutions.

Natural and bio-artificial applications for our enabling platform technology include living tissue, organ and cell preservation for assisted reproduction, transplantation medicine, cell therapy and drug discovery and development. Our solutions are also suitable for bio logistics use across a wide range of temperatures.

Commercially available solutions can be purchased for use under a simple research license and are available in quantities of 10 ml, 50 ml or 500 ml.

Super cool X-1000™

Super cool X-1000 suppresses ice formation as an additive to  cryoprotective solutions intended for vitrification. It allows vitrification solutions to be safer and/or less toxic, thereby improving the performance of almost any vitrification solution.

 

 

Super cool Z-1000™

Although not a vitrification solution itself, Super cool Z-1000 is an additive that enhances the performance of vitrification solutions. Z-1000 is best used in combination with X-1000 to “clean up” residual heterogeneous ice nucleation events in vitrification solutions.

 

 

VEG Cryoprotectant

VEG Cryoprotectant is a low-toxicity formula specifically designed for the successful vitrification of living systems. VEG Cryoprotectant allows solutions--and cells in them-- to be cooled to below the glass transition temperature without the formation of ice.

 

 

VM3 Cryoprotectant

VM3 Cryoprotectant is a low-toxicity formula that is extraordinarily stable against ice formation, which makes it ideal for vitrifying both individual cells and large tissues. A mixture of pure cryoprotectants, VM3 includes Super cool X-1000, Super cool Z-1000, and Super cool PVP “ice blockers.
