White Papers

BioT ULT Transporter

BioCision

The growth of biobanking, cell therapy, and complex biopharmaceutical therapies like cancer vaccines has created a strong need for products and processes to ensure the stability of temperature­-sensitive biospecimens. Proper collection, handling, characterization, packaging and shipping of these materials is critical, as poor sample handling impacts researchers working on discovery with patient samples, as well as clinicians treating patients with cutting edge therapies. This white paper describes in detail the BioCision BioT™ ULT Transporter, the first-of-its-kind dry ice-based portable cooling system that maintains a stable -75° to -50°C environment for over 24 hours on one charge of dry ice, enabling reliable handling and transfer of valuable temperature-sensitive biospecimens as part of a larger cold chain standardization process.
