Cellbox introduces kit for live cell transport

The product combination is designed to facilitate the transport of complex and sensitive cell cultures with the possibility to recover the material post-transport

Cellbox Solutions has collaborated with UBM Biomedicals to launch the CBS Naturally-3D Kit for live cell transport. The product contains the company’s transport gel and easy release solution.

The transport gel is a nanofibrillar cellulose-based hydrogel that provides an artificial extracellular matrix for the cultivation of 3D cell cultures. To complement the transport gel, the company also offers its easy release mixture to dissolve the hydrogel. Together, the product combination is designed to facilitate the transport of complex and sensitive cell cultures with the possibility to recover the material post-transport.

In collaboration with UPM Biomedicals, the Naturally-3D Kit also provides a plant derived and animal-free shipping solution.

"The market for 3D cell cultures continues to grow strongly – as a result we are seeing that more and more of our customers are looking for special transport options," says Dr Corné Swart, Executive Director Business Development & Global Sales at Cellbox Solutions. "Cellbox Solutions clearly recognised the need and has taken a forward-looking approach. With the CBS Naturally-3D Kit and the help of UPM Biomedicals, we are very pleased to now be able to offer our customers an environmentally friendly product designed for this exact purpose.

"Cellbox Solutions and UPM Biomedicals are establishing new standards in live cell transport and shipping through the CBS Naturally-3D kit," said Tony Kiuru, Business Development Manager at UPM Biomedicals. "We are proud of the outcome and pleased to support Cellbox Solutions in their vision."
