Quest Biomedical Limited supply a range of biopreservation media from Biolife Solutions who design, manufacture and market proprietary and generic cGMP bio preservation media products for cells, tissues, and organs.

All BioLife Solutions biopreservation media products are:


HypoThermosol® FRS is an optimised hypothermic (2-8°C) preservation media that enables improved and extended preservation of cells, tissues and organs. HypoThermosol® FRS is uniquely formulated to address the molecular-biological response of cells during the hypothermic preservation process. HypoTheromsol® FRS includes key ions at concentrations that balance the intracellular state at hypothermic temperatures. Additional components include pH buffers, energy substrates, free radical scavengers and osmotic/oncotic stabilisers.

CryoStor®, a series of cell-specific, optimised freeze media, is designed to prepare and preserve cells in ultra low temperature environments (-80ºC to -196ºC). CryoStor®, which is pre-formulated with DMSO, provides a safe, protective environment for cells and tissues during the freezing, storage and thawing process. Through modulating the molecular-biological response to the cryopreservation  process, CryoStor® provides for enhanced cell viability and functionality while eliminating the need for serum, proteins or high levels of cytotoxic agents.

BloodStor® freeze media is specifically designed for cryopreservation of stem cells isolated from umbilical cord blood, peripheral blood and bone marrow. BloodStor® 55-5 is pre-formulated with 55% (w/v) DMSO USP, 5% (w/v) Dextran-40 USP and water for injection (WFI) quality water. BloodStor® 100 contains 100% (w/v) DMSO USP.
