Specialty containers designed to store and ship tissue samples in cryogenic conditions.

WHEATON® CryoELITE® Tissue Vials were designed for the safe, secure and effective cryopreservation of biological tissue specimens.

Different from cells and biofluids, tissue biospecimens have particular requirements for cryogenic storage (see the WHEATON blog at for more information).

Offering researchers a uniform vial able to maintain sample integrity while maximizing storage capacity and organization, the WHEATON CryoELITE Tissue Vials feature a wide-mouth opening, 5mL capacity and high integrity closure.

The CryoELITE Tissue Vial offers researchers who work with biological tissue sections ease of use, convenience and security. When users decision depends on sample integrity…Trust that specimen to a WHEATON CryoELITE Tissue Vial.

CryoELITE Tissue Vials are manufactured from low binding, cryogenic-grade virgin polypropylene that meets USP Class VI classification. Lot tested and certified to be free of pyrogens, RNase/DNase and endotoxins, the vials have a sample capacity of 5mL and a storage temperature range of -156°C to 121°C.

The externally threaded cap provides a seal that exceeds DOT and IATA classifications for diagnostic specimens and their transport and is capable of maintaining a secure closure during freeze/thaw procedures. The vials have a flat bottom and a stippled external surface to promote easier handling.

For additional convenience and productivity, WHEATON offers CryoFile Tissue Boxes, specially designed water-repellant boxes for batching and storing 25 vials in numbered partitions.

Available in six colors for quick identification, CryoFile boxes can be double stacked in a standard 2” freezer rack. Together, CryoELITE Tissue Vials and CryoFile Tissue Boxes are an ideal system for biobanks, research and commercial laboratories, or any institution that stores and distributes tissue sections from humans, animals or plants.

“Tissue specimens are considered by most scientific researchers to contain the most valuable information that we can collect in our efforts to discover therapies and possible cures for cancer and many chronic diseases. CryoELITE Tissue Vials were developed in response to the need to maintain these precious specimens in the most pristine form possible,” says Wayne L. Brinster, CEO & President of WHEATON.

“We are very excited to meet the biomedical research community’s demand for secure, reliable, cryogenically proven vessels to store and transport tissues and fluids,” he added.
