Thermo Scientific HyClone HyCryo and HyCryo-STEM advance cell recovery and viability for general cell culture and stem cell applications.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today expanded its suite of cryopreservation reagents with the introduction of the Thermo Scientific HyClone HyCryo and HyCryo-STEM cryopreservation media, enabling researchers to maximize the preservation, recovery and growth of post-thaw cells for general cell culture and stem cell applications.

The new Thermo Scientific HyCryo™ media is a serum-free, animal component-free product intended for cryogenic preservation and storage of standard cell lines. Animal component-free assures the media is free of any human or animal non-human components to deliver better sample integrity and adaptability. Designed specifically for stem cell applications, Thermo Scientific HyCryo-STEM™ enhances cell recovery and post-thaw growth of pluripotent stem cells and neural progenitor cells. The serum-free formulation maintains differentiation potential and minimizes spontaneous differentiation of stem cells.

“Cell culture scientists that bank cell lines need the assurance that their cell lines are secure during cryogenic storage while maintaining their viability and integrity,” said Roberta Morris, business director, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Our HyCryo formulation is designed to promote viability of frozen cells and ensure cellular integrity and recovery. Furthermore, HyCryo is a turnkey media solution, eliminating the added steps of mixing and filtering multiple products.”

HyCryo and HyCryo-STEM are designed to easily integrate into a researcher’s existing cell culture workflow and processes. Researchers can simply add the HyCryo cryopreservation media directly to prepared cells and transfer to a Thermo Scientific Nunc Cryovial for sample integrity during freezing and long-term storage.
