What we do

CRYOGENE, through its dedicated team of experienced professionals, has a relentless focus on customer responsiveness and quality. Our knowledgeable team is dedicated to delivering the exceptional service our national and international clients have come to expect.

CRYOGENE supports its clients through an ever-expanding infrastructure and advanced freezer technology and inventory control software to fulfill all their specimen storage and distribution requirements. Additionally, CRYOGENE has the highest security standards with biometric access requirements as well as 24/7 facilities monitoring.

CRYOGENE’s campus facilities have a multilayer 24-hour security system using the latest technology.

Using video and state-of-the-art biometric scanning technology linked to our computer system, only approved staff have access to assigned areas.

CRYOGENE lab tech inspecting samples

Samples are constantly monitored for variation in the temperature range required to maintain their minimum critical threshold (MCT). Of course, malfunctions and system failures are extremely rare. However, the team would be alerted prior to any materials reaching their MCT. The computer monitoring system immediately notifies multiple staff members for immediate attention.

Backup pre-cooled cryopreservation units are also available if the transfer of specimens from a freezer unit is required. All critical equipment and computer hardware are backed up with uninterrupted power supply (UPS) units and onsite generators. CRYOGENE is fully dedicated to providing complete risk mitigation of your sample materials.
