The role of Cryopreservation within Cell and Gene Therapy

Cell and gene therapies are innovative approaches to treating diseases by harnessing the power of a patient's own cells or by introducing genetic material to correct or modify cellular functions. These therapies have the potential to revolutionise the field of medicine and provide new treatment options for a wide range of diseases, including genetic disorders, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative disorders and autoimmune diseases.

Cryopreservation vs. Lyophilisation: Decoding the glass transition phenomenon

In the realm of preserving delicate biological substances and pharmaceuticals, two prominent methods take centre stage: cryopreservation and lyophilisation. Cryopreservation involves either controlled or rapid freezing of biological materials, while lyophilisation focuses on removing water through freeze-drying. At the heart of these techniques lies a crucial phenomenon known as the glass transition – a pivotal factor influencing the stability and longevity of products.

Centralising cryostorage for better safety and sample management

Samples are at the heart of every lab. They are often valuable, precious and contain information that could answer novel research questions. This could lead to new drug discoveries, provide people with life-saving treatments, or, in the case of infertility clinics, helping to create lives. Therefore, in fertility clinics, academia, biobanks, research and pharmaceutical laboratories, safe handling and storage of biological samples is paramount to achieve successful results.
