ThawSTAR CFT2 Thawing Cells System ThawSTAR CFT2 Thawing Cells System ThawSTAR CFT2 Thawing Cells Dry ice transport for 2.0 mL cryogenic vials

ThawSTAR® CFT2

Transport and Cell Thawing System Item No. MCS-600

The ThawSTAR® CFT2 Thawing Instrument replaces unstandardized manual methods with controlled profile thawing, and can be leveraged early in the R&D phase and scaled into commercial manufacturing and point of care. Several factors including cell size and choice of cryopreservation media can affect the optimal thawing profile, viability, and function of a live drug product. For therapeutic thawing of cells, ThawSTAR instruments will undergo custom tuning using advanced algorithms for the specific cell therapy product under development, in order to ensure that the optimal thaw rate and cell health is achieved.

ThawSTAR CFT2 Transporter is a portable solution for the handling and transport of frozen vials from long-term storage in vapor phase liquid nitrogen or in a -80°C freezer to downstream processing with the ThawSTAR Automated Thawing Instrument. ThawSTAR Transporter protects therapeutic cells from transient warming events during transport to ensure maximum cell health.
