Description and Specification


Description Model: TS/80-YE; Micro-organism preservation beads, Protect Yellow in moisture resistant freezer box

Consists of porous ceramic beads suspended in a cryopreservative and contained in a freezer vial. Recovery has been reported after seven years storage in Protect. It takes just a couple of minutes to set up the Protect system. Storage at -70°C is recommended but good results have been obtained at storage temperatures of up to -20°C. Protect vials are available in a range of colors so a coding system can be set up in the laboratory. Reduces the labour costs of continual subculturing and eliminates the need to purchase expensive freeze drying equipment. The culture viability can be checked regularly without sacrificing the entire vial. Reduces the risk of both mutations, which may alter the culture phenotype, and contamination associated with continual subculturing techniques. The storage system comes in a ready-to-use pack consisting of a polystyrene or polypropylene tray holding 100 vials, each containing 20 to 25 treated beads in a cryopreservation fluid. Protect is used for long term storage of:
  • Bacteria, fungi and yeasts
  • Quality control cultures
  • Culture collections
  • Cross infection isolates
