Companies in Cryobiology


International Cryogenics, Inc. was formed in 1980 to design and manufacture high quality cryogenic equipment. To this day the company has maintained its standard for quality products at competitive prices. The IC Cryo-biological product line is broken down into 4 major product groups: The Refrigerator Group, Vapor Shipper Group, Dewar Group and the Director Series Group.

The Refrigerator Group consists of 11 portable aluminum cryogenic vessels, which range in size from 6 liters to 50 liters. These vessels are complete with canisters for the cryo-preservation of biological specimens. The largest customers of this product line include dairy farmers, veterinarians, hospitals and bio-labs. The features of this group are a molded handle assembly, transparent dome cover, more product capacity, better working visibility, more ruggedness, unique styling and a 5-year warranty.

The Vapor Shipper Group consists of 4 “dry-shipper” aluminum cryogenic vessels, which range in size from 2 liters to 20 liters. These lightweight vessels are primarily used for fast, economical transport of samples by laboratories and veterinarians. Advantages include a customized shipping carton that is included with each vessel, better holding time, large capacity – model for model, and a 2-year warranty.

The Dewar Group consists of 7 portable aluminum cryogenic vessels, which range in size from 5 liters to 50 liters. The primary function of these vessels is to store liquid nitrogen. Many laboratories, dermatologists and even family practitioners are using these vessels on a daily basis. The advantages of this group are unique styling, more ruggedness, ergonomic handles and a 5-year warranty. Also, a complete range of accessories is available, such as the dipper, liquid withdrawal device, rollerbase, pouring handle, transfer line and phase separator.

The Director Series Group, which is the newest group, consists of 3 larger models designed primarily for laboratory use for rack-storage of vials. These units range in size from 60 liters to 120 liters and can store from 2000 to 4000 vials. The outstanding features of this line include indexed racks, high strength aluminum shell, greater efficiency, attractive styling, and a 2-year warranty. Accessories available for these units include the rollerbase, low level alarm and transfer line.

Some of the more exciting achievements for IC this past year include the opportunity to do private labeling for several major companies, most notably NUAIRE, a multi-national laboratory equipment company located in Plymouth, MN. Also IC’s international distribution network continues to expand to dealers in Latin America, Europe and Asia with record sales to the UK, Japan and Israel. IC has also created two new products this year, the IC-2VS, vapor shipper and the IC-22R / RX, refrigerator. IC continues to strive to meet the end-users’ requirements for better technology.
