CoolCell® LX Alcohol-Free Cryopreservation Container
CoolCell® LX containers, in combination with a -80°C freezer or dry ice locker, will provide the freezing rate of -1°C per minute that is ideal for cryo-preservation of most cultured cell lines. The CoolCell LX design uses a combination of highly insulative closed-cell foam, radial symmetry, and a solid-state alloy core to regulate heat loss rather than using a large thermal mass, such as alcohol-based freezing containers. As a result, freezing profiles are extremely consistent from one run to the next. Because of this low thermal mass, CoolCell LX containers will not cause a rise in local freezer temperature and will protect nearby samples already stored in the freezer. Low thermal mass also means the Cool Cell LX container will rapidly return to room temperature for another freezing cycle (see fast recycle instructions).
