All the advantages of the CVM Vitrification Kit combined with fully sealed Sleeves (straws).

Vitrification is still performed on a solid surface providing ultra rapid cooling of specimens.
Following vitrification specimens are inserted into a sleeve which is then fully heat sealed.
Before warming a Sleeve Cutter is used to simply remove the specimens from the Sleeve.
The specimens can then be rapidly warmed in media.

No thermal barrier, either plastic or liquid nitrogen vapour, is present during vitrification or warming.

CVM Vitrification Kit

CVM


The CryoLogic Vitrification Method is a simple and reliable process used to vitrify and thaw specimens. The CVM™ kit overcomes many of the problems usually encountered with vitrification. It has been specially designed to provide ultra-rapid cooling of specimens without their immersion in, or direct contact with, liquid nitrogen. Specimens are collected into small droplets and each droplet is transferred onto a hook at the end of a custom designed fibre called a Fibreplug™. The droplets are vitrified by touching the hook of the Fibreplug™ to the surface of a chilled block. The CryoLogic Vitrification Method not only provides ultra-rapid cooling of specimens, but just as importantly, ultra-rapid warming of specimens as well.
