Cryogenic Storage

Cryo Storage Solutions can offer you safe and secure cryogenic sample storage facilities.

You may be short of lab or storage space, or need to cryogenically store certain samples offsite. At Cryo Storage Solutions we would be very pleased to help you.

Just for information’s sake, and not to teach your Grandmother how to suck eggs; we know that at low enough temperatures, any enzymatic or chemical activity which might cause damage to the biological material in question is effectively stopped.


We get down to those temperatures by using liquid nitrogen (LIN) freezers called bio-banks. We currently don’t store in the liquid phase, but utilise the LIN’s boil-off properties to store in the vapour phase. We understand (and love working with) liquid nitrogen, bio-banks, and temperature monitoring systems. At our Cardiff cryogenic storage facility, we are able to hold your precious samples, seed cell stocks, and stem cells at cryogenic temperatures, down to -196°c if required.

Our bio-banks, Dewars, and SiVL system are from Cryotherm of Germany and are ultra-reliable and efficient. Combining this with our 24-7 cryogenic engineering Service Level Agreement from CTM Europe, and our permanent access to a 6 tonne tank of liquid nitrogen, means that we can offer peace of mind when storing your biological materials or pharmaceutical products.

We’re all about reliability and trust at Cryo Storage Solutions. We know what we’re doing with ultra-low temperatures and storage tanks, and we can help to de-risk your business activities. We aim to manage and maintain your samples safely and securely whilst being convenient, easy to access and cost effective.

We don’t want to see you suffering any financial losses or reputational damage because a freezer failed or that you ran out of space. Call us now on 02921 303518.
