Reserve Cryostorage

New Service offered: Backup Cryogenic Storage of Important Cell Lines Due to the impact of power outages during inclement weather over the past years, the Lymphocyte Culture Center now offers liquid nitrogen storage for the preservation of crucial cell lines to the research community. The center has an exceptional history of hybridoma storage and recovery with over 30 years of experience. Storage in this new dedicated cell bank will be limited and designed to hold a few vials of each cell line. This service is available only as emergency back up and not as a daily working unit. Through this opportunity, the researcher may be assured of cell availability should their own storage units fail resulting in the loss of frozen stocks. The cost of this service is $20/six vials/year. The service is scheduled to begin on April 1, 2011. For more information or to schedule a deposit contact: Buck Bailes by phone at 3-9681 or by email at wfb9a@virginia.edu Instructions for deposit: Stocks should be frozen in Nunc 1.8ml cryovials ONLY. Human or non-human primate derived cells, or cells that are known to be virally infected, should be noted as BSL2. Any BSL2 stocks transported to or from the Lymphocyte Culture Center must be in BSL2 labeled containers.
