Cell Cryopreservation Media

CELLBANKER products are ready-to-use cell freezing mediums for cell cryopreservation. CELLBANKER cryopreservation solutions have been used extensively in Japan, and unlike other conventional cell freezing methods, CELLBANKER freezing solutions:

  • Allow direct freezing at -80°C
  • Provide long-term cell storage (>10 years) at -80°C or under liquid nitrogen
  • Are ready-to-use without dilution
  • Are completely chemically defined formulations
  • Can be used for cryopreservation of most mammalian cell types and cell lines, including those considered sensitive

CELLBANKER 1 plus is a complete serum-containing cell cryopreservation medium that can be used for freezing a wide variety of mammalian cells.

CELLBANKER 2 is a serum-free cell freezing medium that is completely free of animal-derived components. CELLBANKER 2 is ideal for cryopreservation of cells cultured in the absence of serum and peptide/protein-expressing cells.

CELLOTION Cell Wash and Recovery Solution

CELLOTION is a chemically defined cell washing solution that is serum-, protein-, and sugar-free. CELLOTION can be used as a direct substitute for standard cell wash solutions (e.g., PBS or saline) for washing cells, tissues, or organs. The use of CELLOTION for cell washing can increase cell yield when isolating cells and thawing frozen cells.
