Transportation of Stem Cells



Stem cells are typically frozen using liquid nitrogen or dry ice, so that they can be stored at room temperature using a semi-permeable hydrogel. This allows the stem cells to be used almost immediately upon arriving. As these cells offer enormous benefits and potential for treating major illnesses like cancer and heart disease, it is essential that they can be transported easily and quickly.

Stem cells require temperature controlled packing and must not be exposed to X-Rays at any cost through the transportation process. These shipments are extremely sensitive and need to be transported intact, without diminishing their quality or damaging the packaging.
