Preservation Products



There is a growing need to preserve and store biological specimens. Traditionally, this is accomplished by simple means, depending upon the characteristics and properties of the material being stored. Temperature is a key parameter for storing cells and tissues but typically storage of these materials involve some form of container (box, tube, etc.) that is kept at room temperature, refrigerated, or frozen.  We believe that our line of Preservation Products offer several unique advantages for the storage and preservation of biological materials.


Oxyrase® Preservation Products utilize the unique benefits of the Oxyrase® technology for an innovative approach to storage and preservation. Depending on your specific storage conditions, equipment, experiment or facility, we offer the following products designed to store and preserve your bacteria, cells and other biological material. In all cases, the inclusion of the Oxyrase® Enzyme System provides a stable, reduced environment ideal for preservation.  Our preservation line includes:


  • CryoBroth™ is a novel product for storage and preservation of microorganisms under cryogenic conditions.  It combines the cryoprotectant properties of glycerol with the Oxyrase Enzyme System resulting in a medium that optimizes cell preservation during, and recovery after, storage at ultra-low temperatures because it never freezes.


  • OxyStab™ is an exciting and convenient product, inspired by the need to preserve microorganisms in the laboratory.  This is a solid agar containing the Oxyrase® Enzyme System.  OxyStab™ is ideally used for refrigerated (2-8°C) and room temperature storage. 


  • OxyStasis™ is a revolutionary product that eliminates the damage to cells during frozen storage, eliminates the need for costly cryo-storage equipment and provides the convenience of preservation under normal freezer conditions (≤ -20°C)
