ICT U.S.biobank system focuses on providing and facilitating the storage of human umbilical cord blood and tissue, placenta and umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells storage. Our BioBank is 1,350 square-feet, the maximum tank can fit about 20 cryogenic freezers, and we also offer VIP cryogenic freezers for individuals. This system effectively standardizes the collection, processing, storage and application procedures of stem cells and tissues. The process systematically conducts quality control and information management on all samples from sample receival to final product.
The biological samples include umbilical cord tissue and blood; and advanced clinical-grade stem cell products, such as umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cell biologics.
- Storage capacity of approx. 250,000 biological specimens.
- Utilizes the most advanced cryopreservation technology worldwide with the latest double screen monitor and – 196 Celsius Degree liquid nitrogen tank.
- Built in accordance with the strict cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) under the guidelines published by CDPH (California Department of Public Health) and AABB (American Association of Blood Banks).
ICT U.S. cleanroom is about 5,000 square feet, which is ISO 6 compatible with ISO 5 Biosafety cabinets for cell culturing, and tissue and cord blood processing. The Biosafety Cabinet is an enclosed, ventilated laboratory workspace for safely handling our samples. The BSC maintains the sterility of clients’ samples to the highest level.
We use the MVE 1800 Series -190-degree Celsius High Efficiency Freezer. Not only do these freezers provide maximum storage density and the industry’s longest hold time, but each freezer provides cryogenic storage for up to 94,500 samples. They also provide the best automatic liquid nitrogen refill system, an automatic door lock, 24-hour alert, and a camera to monitor our samples.
