  • MedicalDevice EngChonBoonCryovials store biospecimens at very low temperature for cryopreservation.
  • Existing cryovials are not space-efficient for storage of small solid specimens (about 1 cm3 or smaller)
  • This invention effectively increases the storage space without the need for equipment or infrastructural upgrade
  • Dimensions of our novel cryovial are compatible to the other commercially-available cryovials for liquid specimen storage


Market Impact
  • Global biobankingmarkets are growing due to the prevalence of chronic diseases and cancer (expected to double by 2030)
  • Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.07% from 2015-2019 (Researchmoz)


Technology Description
  • Series of cryogenic vials that nest on top of one another through the top of another vial cap that fits into the common specimen container tray
  • Retrofit into most specimen trays (for 1.5 -2mL vials) available in the market
  • Optimizes the quantity of specimen stored
  • Prevents recontamination with a threaded cap for every vial

This technology will be applicable in the following areas:

  • Biobanks
  • Facilities such as hospital, research laboratories, academic centers, pharmaceuticals and commercial laboratories


Future Progress

Upon successful in vivo demonstration of this technology’s safety and efficacy, the technology is ideally placed as a licensing opportunity to MNC / SME operating in stent manufacturing fields.
