Get more intact, viable cells with serum-free cell freezing medium.

The unique, patented formulation of BAMBANKER serum-free cell freezing medium has been optimized to give excellent recovery for cryogenically preserved cells.

Now available from Alpha Laboratories, it protects even delicate cells during medium and long term ultra low temperature storage, BAMBANKER has been tested with established cell lines, primaries and stem cells.

Both human and animal cells have been successfully preserved, demonstrating excellent survival rates.

BAMBANKER also saves time. It is ready-to use, no dilution or addition of DMSO/glycerol are required.

Simply harvest cells during the logarithmic growth phase, aspirate media and resuspend in BAMBANKER before freezing.

There is no need for programmable freezers or step-wise temperature reduction, just freeze cells directly at -80C. Frozen cells can subsequently be transferred to liquid nitrogen storage facilities if desired.

A stringent quality assurance programme ensures protection for users precious cell cultures with sterility, endotoxin, mycoplasma, fungi and bacteria testing on every batch.

Available in two pack sizes, a single 120ml bottle for high volume users storing large batches of cells or 5x20ml bottles.

Ideal for dedicated use with specific cell lines or culture areas to minimize cross contamination of cultures and culture facilities.

Disrupting Cell’s Supply Chain Freezes Cancer Virus
When the cancer-causing Epstein-Barr virus moves into a B-cell of the human immune system, it tricks the cell into rapidly making more copies of itself, each of which will carry the virus.
Why Do Some Infections Persist?
In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found.

The last major congress of the year, ASCB is less a platform for launching new products, but one for confirming and consolidating the trends that have emerged over the past 12 months.
Squeezing Cells into Stem Cells
EPFL scientists have developed a new method that helps cells turn in usable stem cells. The new approach involves “squeezing” cells with a gel, and paves the way for large-scale production of stem cells for medical purposes.
