No more DMSO – for the most sensitive cells

DMSO is added to most freezing reagents to help avoid formation of ice crystals, which of course harm the cells. However, DMSO is cytotoxic and can reduce the survival rate of certain sensitive cell lines. Bambanker DMSO Free is made without DMSO. Instead, it uses a unique formulation to avoid the formation of ice crystals. This makes Bambanker DMSO Free especially suitable for cell lines that proved to be sensitive to DMSO under long-term storage conditions.


There a four different version of BambankerTM:

  • BambankerTM (standard for all cell lines, package units: 20 mL, 5 x 20 mL, 120 mL)

BB03-Bambanker- 20mL

BBF01 Bambanker Freezing Media-DMSO-Free

Customer reference

I consider Bambanker a very useful worktool for the following reasons:
1) replacement of a toxic substance (DMSO)
2) saving of 4 hours of time required for freezing in nitrogen / -80° C foreseen with the use of DMSO
3) cellular vitality guaranteed after the defrosting of all the linesthat I manage
