    iP-TEC®

    Innovative labware for transporting live cells without freezing them

    Product Basics

    iP-TEC® labware is an innovative solution for transporting live cells without freezing them. Currently, freezing cells for transportation enables them to be transported in a stabilized condition. However, the thawing process is stressful to cultured cells. Furthermore, the freeze-and-thaw process is time, labor, and material-intensive, increasing the risk of cells being damaged or destroyed. iP-TEC® solves these problems by creating a 3-tiered packaging solution that maintains a healthy environment for cells during transportation.

    Key Features

    Technical Information

    Challenges in Cell Transportation

    The risks and problems associated with frozen cell transport are damage to cells, cost, and time, but various challenges are also present in transporting live cells. Parameters such as temperature, pH, CO₂, contamination can change cells. Excess use of culture medium to prevent bubbles, sloshing can apply stress and damage to cells.

    Addressing the Challenges

    Existing Challenges iP-TEC® Solutions
    Temperature The optimal temperature of cell culture is largely dependent on the body temperature of the host. Temperature Stabilizer and insulated transportation box can maintain the temperature at 33-36 C for > 150 hours.
    Healthy Environment Cells have specific optimal environment. Each growth medium’s buffering system depends on CO₂ minute ventilation and bicarbonate concentrations to achieve proper pH and osmotic pressure. iP-TEC® system with the Culture PAL® CO₂ pack can maintain 5% CO₂ environment during transportation.
    Contamination
    /Leakage
    Lack of proper seal leads to contamination and leakage. Silicone rubber cover, complimented with iP-TEC® secondary containers provides proper seal.
    Medium Air in the container can cause sloshing resulting in shear force to cells. To avoid this medium is used in excess to fill the container in full. The unique iP-TEC® Flask-25 requires about 55% less culture medium to fill to capacity compared to other 25cm² flasks.
    Variety There are various cell types, 3D tissues, and culture conditions iP-TEC® labware consists of various plates, flask and containers to address different type of cells and culture conditions.
