August 2018: CryoCrate LLC Won a NIH SBIR Phase I Award for a Novel Stem Cell Cryopreservation Method.
CryoCrate collaborating with the Dean of the College of Engineering at University of Missouri at Columbia won a NIH SBIR phase I award. A novel system will be developed to enable significantly higher efficiency (over 90% post-thaw viability) in existing stem cell cryopreservation method, removes the need for animal origin products (e.g. serum, albumin, etc) and minimizes the cryoprotectant concentration. The method also prevents issues generated by donor variation that impairs various regenerative medicine applications.
