Specimen Collection Supplies

Your sample will be collected using the supplies inside your kit, into a vessel that contains tissue culture media and antibiotics.

Temperature Datalogger

This stays with the sample during transport to continuously monitor the sample and ensures sample quality.

Thermal Regulated Transporter

Our collection bag is designed to prevent temperature fluctuations during transport. It ensures that the samples are maintained at the correct temperatures even if the kit is exposed to extreme conditions.

Overnight Courier Service

All Forensic Cryopreservation kits contain a prepaid FedEx Overnight return shipping label – guaranteeing timely delivery of your samples to our laboratory.

At SecuriGene Labs, we employ cutting-edge technology to ensure the meticulous preservation of biological materials through forensic cryopreservation. The process begins with the collection of tissue/forensic samples, utilizing our specialized Forensic Cryopreservation Collection Kit designed for ease of use and rapid delivery. Upon arrival, each sample undergoes rigorous processing, including a sterility check and cell count, verifying the sample’s integrity.

To prevent cellular or tissue damage during the freezing and future thawing processes, cryoprotectants are carefully added to all samples. We adhere to advanced computer-controlled rate freezing, ensuring a gradual temperature reduction in precise intervals to minimize potential damage to the cellular structures. This method goes beyond traditional preservation, with a specific focus on maintaining the integrity of whole cells.

Our storage methodology is built upon next-generation vapor phase storage tanks, a highly secure and contamination-resistant approach. Unlike conventional liquid nitrogen storage tanks, this technology eliminates the risk of contamination associated with direct contact between samples, ensuring the purity of each preserved biological material.

Our commitment to precision extends to the use of specialized cryoprotectants, designed to protect the original structure of the preserved tissue. The process is carefully monitored to prevent excessive cooling that may damage cellular membranes.

Upon successful cryopreservation, you will receive a Certificate of Cryopreservation, offering details about the stored sample, providing you with access, updating, and renewal options for your storage plan. The technical precision, combined with adherence to the highest industry standards, establishes our forensic tissue cryopreservation service as a reliable and advanced solution for preserving the cellular essence of your loved ones.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Benefit from the world’s most advanced cryopreservation technology, ensuring unparalleled precision in safeguarding biological materials.

Accredited laboratory

All tests are performed in our AABB, ISO 17025 & CLIA accredited laboratory.

Quality Guarantee

Our meticulous tissue collection, cryoprotectant application, and vapor phase storage guarantee the utmost care in preserving the cellular essence of your loved ones.

Private & confidential

Your data belongs to you. We do not share your data with any third party without your permission.

How it works

1. Tissue is collected & sent to our lab

Our Forensic Collection Kit contains everything your sample collector needs to obtain a tissue sample for cryopreservation. All kits include a prepaid FedEx return label to ensure samples arrive at our laboratory as quickly as possible.

2. Sample is processed & analyzed

The sample is processed as soon as it arrives at our lab. A sterility check and cell count is performed in order to validate the integrity of the sample.

3. Cryoprotectants are added

To prevent cellular or tissue damage during the freezing and future thawing processes, cryoprotectants are added to all samples.

4. Temperature is gradually reduced

A brisk change in temperature during cooling (thermal shock) often causes cellular lesions and damage to the sample. To safeguard against this, SecuriGene uses state-of-the-art computer-controlled rate freezers to gradually drop the temperature in precise intervals.

5. Next generation vapor phase storage

Samples are transferred to our next-generation vapor phase storage tanks, which are designed to minimize the risk of contamination commonly associated with older liquid phase storage tanks.

6. The sample is successfully cryopreserved

The sample is now stable, and safely stored for years to come! You will receive a Certificate of Cryopreservation along with details to access your samples, update your file, or renew your storage plan.

More Questions »

Our Forensic Cryopreservation service is versatile and can be applied to a wide range of organic items. This includes but is not limited to biological tissues, blood, hair, DNA samples, plant specimens, and other organic materials. The goal is to empower families to preserve items with sentimental or scientific value, allowing for the potential retrieval and use of these items in the future.

The cryopreservation process involves carefully lowering the temperature of the organic material to ultra-low levels, effectively halting biological processes and preventing decay. The addition of cryoprotectants and the usage of computer-controlled rate freezer units ensures a gradual cooling process to minimize damage. Additionally, each preserved item is carefully cataloged and stored in secure, monitored facilities with redundant systems to guarantee the integrity and safety of the stored materials.

The duration of cryopreservation can be extended indefinitely with our state-of-the-art technology. Families have the flexibility to decide on the storage duration based on their preferences and needs. In the event that retrieval is desired, our process includes secure and reliable methods for item extraction. Whether for personal use, scientific study, or other purposes, our retrieval process is designed to ensure the preserved items remain viable and intact.

The base price for Forensic Cryopreservation is $3200, which includes the first year of storage. For clients seeking extended storage beyond the initial year, the pricing is as follows:

  • 1 year: $291
  • 10 years: $2000
  • 30 years: $4920
  • Lifetime: $6850

These options provide flexibility for clients to choose the duration that best suits their needs. The pricing is transparent, and there are no hidden fees associated with the extended storage plans. Clients can decide on the storage duration that aligns with their preferences and can easily extend their cryopreservation period as desired.

The access to cryopreserved samples is highly secure and customizable to meet the preferences of our clients. Each order is password protected, ensuring that only authorized individuals can access the preserved items.

To enhance convenience and flexibility, customers have the option to list emails on file for access. This means they can add multiple individuals to the order, allowing designated persons to access the sample. The level of protection is determined by the customer, providing them with control over who can retrieve and interact with the cryopreserved materials. This feature is designed to accommodate the varying needs and preferences of our clients, ensuring a secure and tailored experience.
