Advanced Delivery of Cell Therapies with New Thawing Technology

GE Healthcare introduces the VIA Thaw CB1000 for large volumes of cell therapies cryopreserved in cryobags. The VIA Thaw range of innovative, automated, dry thawing units provides users with control over the thawing of sensitive therapies and delivers a simple, reproducible, and traceable recovery system that maintains cell viability.

VIA Thaw CB1000
The VIA Thaw CB1000 standardizes and streamlines sample recovery by capturing a complete, auditable thaw record. Combining automation with dry conduction thawing enables the thaw endpoint to be precisely determined, and eliminates the contamination risk associated with water baths. Thaw profiles can be customized for every cell therapy sample and transmitted to thawers across multiple sites to ensure consistency. All VIA Thaw CB1000 units have a ‘lock-down’ option to limit the operator to a single pre-set profile. Electronic data logging creates a record of each step and enables sources of variation to be identified quickly. All VIA Thaw units integrate with GE’s digital my.Cryochain platform to standardize and audit thawing processes from any web-browser.

The VIA Thaw series is intended for research use only. The user is solely responsible for obtaining the appropriate IND/BLA/NDA, or equivalent approvals, for any clinical application. For more information, please visit

Mini Multi-Application Imaging System

Syngene introduces G:BOX mini, a compact, upgradeable, multi-application system for all types of gel and Western blot imaging. It features a motorized stage, high performance camera, and the option to add HI-LED lighting. The G:BOX mini can image and resolve close bands or spots even on complex 2D gels with its high performance 0.95 lens in a 6 or 9-megapixel camera. Combining a unique motorized stage and super-cooled camera generates true-to-life, low-noise optical images.

The G:BOX mini guarantees faster exposure times than most compact CCD-based systems. The application-driven GeneSys software makes it quick and simple for researchers to set-up their optimum filter and lighting combinations to image multiplexed fluorescent and IR dyes, DNA, and stain-free protein gels. The software also auto-calibrates to each gel or blot’s size, ensuring great images every time. For more information, please visit
