Controlled-rate freezer maintains cellular viability during the freezing process, certain cells – such as protist, mammalian, and plant cells – require precise control of the freezing rate in order to minimize the detrimental effects of undercooling and the heat liberated during the phase change process from water to ice.
Controlled rate freezing is an established procedure for the cryopreservation of biologic material in research and clinical applications. In-line with GMP protocols, cell material can be frozen then stored at cryogenic temperatures.
CryoVita controlled-rate freezer (CRF) achieve reliable, reproducible results with maximum operational safety. They are used for clinical, veterinary and research tasks for controlled rate freezing of samples.
