    • Specialized Logistics We offer temperature-controlled transport solutions for your samples. Whether your samples need to be transported at -196°C, -80°C, -25°C, or within a specific positive temperature range, we ensure that the cold chain is maintained throughout the journey, safeguarding your samples against temperature fluctuations and potential damage.

    What Temperature Ranges Does Cytion Offer for Storage?

    Cytion provides diverse storage temperatures to suit the specific needs of biological samples, ensuring their integrity and longevity. Explore our storage solutions from room temperature to cryogenic conditions for optimal preservation.

    Room Temperature (17-22 °C)

    Suitable for biological samples preserved with fixatives such as formalin, alcohol, or paraffin. DNA can be extracted, but may be degraded and not suitable for all analyses. Not ideal for RNA due to its instability. This method is cost-effective for tissue samples, stored in a climate-controlled environment. DNA extraction can be performed on request.

    5-8 °C (Refrigerator)

    Best for native, isolated biological materials like antibodies, enzymes, or DNA. Proteins may lose biological activity if not stored at this temperature. While short-term storage is recommended for proteins, isolated DNA can be preserved for longer periods.

    -20 °C (Freezer)

    Suitable for many biological materials, including tissues. DNA and RNA can be stored in proper stabilization solutions. To avoid unnecessary thawing cycles, proper aliquoting is recommended before storage.

    -80 °C (Ultra-Low Freezer)

    Ideal for long-term storage of biological samples. This temperature slows the degradation of biological molecules like DNA and proteins.

    -150 °C (Vapor Phase of Liquid Nitrogen)

    Considered the gold standard for storing biological samples, either in the vapor phase or directly in liquid nitrogen. This temperature prevents material degradation, making it ideal for long-term storage. No stabilization reagents are needed, allowing for the preservation of sensitive biological materials.
