Product description

The freezing medium Bambanker offered by the Japanese company Lymphotec was developed initially just for their own R&D projects. They needed a suitable medium for long-term storage of highly sensitive cell lines, such as lymphocytes. Thanks to the innovative formulation of the new freezing medium, an European Patent (EP 1347040) was granted and the development of this media was made commercially available. Today this innovative cell freezing medium Bambanker is the market leader in Japan and characterized by many different published articles with very sensitive cell lines all over the world.

BAMBANKER DIRECT is a novel cell freezing medium, which can be added directly to culture nedium without centrifuging the collected cells. Then after suspending the cells the user can freeze and preserve the cells in a deep freezer at -80°C. In order to meet customers requests, this product has been modified not to require tiring preparation steps for freezing. This newly developed medium maximizes the work efficiency significantly.

Cryopreservation, including freezing and thawing, becomes very important for cell culture technology. Cryopreservation of primate ES and iPS cells is very severe and difficult compared to murine or other cells. At present, vitrification method is considered adequate for primate ES/iPS cell, although slow-freezing method using DMSO has been popular for a wide variety of cell lines. Vitrification method needs special skills and has to avoid dry ice transportation. To address these problems, we developed a new freezing medium (BambankerTM HRM) containing Human Serum Albumin and DMSO for primate ES/iPS cells.
