Cryo Express "dry shippers" are designed to transport a variety of materials at cryogenic temperatures safely. The unique adsorbent material prevents liquid spill if the unit is tipped over. This eliminates the danger of spills and represents a significant improvement in the shipment of biogenic material.

Storage temperature inside the shipping cavity remains at a temperature lower than -150°C (typically - 190°C) until the liquid nitrogen evaporates entirely from the adsorbent. This increases reliability, especially in the case of shipments involving long distances.

Due to superior vacuum performance with super insulation, these units provide maximum holding times. With these vessels and the shipping cases, international shipment no longer represents a problem. 

The optional available data logger records the storage temperature of biological materials.




Cryo Express (CX) dry shippers designed to safely transport a variety of materials at cryogenic temperatures. The unique absorbent material prevents a liquid spill if the unit is tipped over. Storage temperature inside the shipping cavity remains at approximately -190°C until the liquid nitrogen evaporates from the absorbent material.

Data Logger



The data logger permits uninterrupted monitoring and logging of the temperature inside the CX and CXR shippers. This is indispensable in the case of  valuable samples. The logger and thermocouple temperature sensor are contained within a modified neck plug therefore avoiding trailing wires or extra boxes which could become damaged or detached in transit. The logger complies with the following standards:

  • EMC Directive 89/336/EEC
  • RTCA  DO-160D  Sect.  21.4, Radiated Emission  –  Cat.  B  (for  safe operation on board aircraft) 

  • Measuring range: - 199° C to + 40° C (accuracy +/- 3° C)
  • Logging of  up  to  8192 temperature measurements in non-volatile memory
  • Logging intervals can be set between 1 and 30 minutes
  • Battery  life of  min. 5 years (non-re-chargeable lithium battery)
  • PC interface for setting up, collection and analysis of data
  • LED  status  indication for recording (active/standby) and battery condition
  • LED indication of too high temperature
  • Tip Over’ Switch – Detects if the shipper has been laid on its side during transport. The position is logged at the same  time  as  the temperature. ‘Tip Over’ is indicated in the temperature log and by LED.

Shipping Cases


To protect the CX/CXR shippers during transportation various types of shipping cases or padded cartons are availale as accessory.
