Ready To Ship Your Samples?

Fill out the service form linked below and include it with your shipment to RayBiotech. Cells should be in the appropriate amount of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and shipped frozen (on dry ice).

Freezing Cells

  1. Aliquot the cells into cryovials containing cell culture media and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) at the desired cell concentration. The appropriate amount of DMSO depends on the cells, but is usually 5 - 10% (v/v).
  2. Slowly freeze cells to maintain cell viability. You can either place the cryovials in a controlled rate freezing apparatus (decreasing the temperature approximately 1°C per minute) or in an isopropanol chamber overnight at -80°C.
  3. Store the cells in the gas phase in a liquid nitrogen tank.
  4. Ship the cells on dry ice. Ensure that there is enough dry ice to keep the cells frozen during shipping. Please ship your samples overnight on Mondays through Wednesdays only. Learn more about how to ship samples by clicking the SAMPLE SHIPMENT INSTRUCTIONS button below.
