Cryopreserved Cell Storage Conditions

AllCells recommends all cryopreserved products be stored at -180°C in vapor phase liquid nitrogen. Long term storage at -80°C is not recommended.

Storage Precautions

** WARNING: Do not store AllCells frozen cell products in the liquid phase of liquid nitrogen (LN2). Liquid can enter closed screw top cryovials, which then have the potential to explode when removed from storage. **

If AllCells products are stored in liquid phase of LN2, at -20˚C, or -80˚C for >1 month will void any warranty of the product.

Laboratory personnel should use extreme caution when storing samples in LN2. LN2 storage consists of a liquid phase and a gaseous. If cryovials are immersed in the liquid phase, LN2 can enter the closed screw-top cryovials during storage. The cryovial may then explode when it is removed from storage due to the vaporization and expansion (700x expansion ratio) of the liquid nitrogen inside the cryovial.

Health Hazards of Liquid Nitrogen

Liquid nitrogen has a 700x expansion ratio, which may cause physical hazards and injuries from the explosion of cryovials, containers, equipment, or other devices. Extensive tissue damage or burns can result from exposure to LN2 or cold nitrogen vapors. Asphyxiation may result from the displacement of oxygen in the air with nitrogen to levels where there is insufficient oxygen. Inhalation of oxygen deficient air can cause dizziness, nausea, vomiting, loss of consciousness, and death.

Personal Protective Equipment

The following personal protective equipment is encouraged when handling or using LN2:

Cryo gloves /Waterproof thermal insulated gloves

  • Hands should be protected with waterproof thermal insulated gloves that can be quickly removed if LN2 is spilled on them. Cryo gloves are not intended for submersing hands into LN2.

Lab coats

  • Body must be protected with pants, lab coats, and closed-toe shoes.

Safety goggles

  • Eyes are sensitive to the extreme cold of LN2 and its vapors. Over-pressurization may result in the explosion of improperly stored cryovials. Chemical splash goggles should be used when handling LN2 and when handling cryovials and other sealed containers that have been stored in LN2.

Safety Precautions

AllCells uses cryovials that are designed for vapor phase liquid nitrogen storage.

If long-term storage in the LN2 liquid phase is required, do not use the cryovials provided by AllCells.

Use either:

  • Manufacturer-approved cryovials, specifically designed for liquid phase storage.
  • Gaseous phase-approved screw-top cryovials that are then hermetically sealed in an outer protective envelope designed for use in LN2.

The handling of cryovials inside of Biological Safety Cabinets or Chemical Hoods (with the sash lowered) will further reduce the risk of injury from explosions caused by excess pressure within the vial.

Limited Warranty: AllCells warranty of frozen cell products for a period of 1 year form the date of receipt if stored properly.
