Cryo Vials with Smart Chip Technology

Our unique ColdPoint® cryogenic storage vials have been developed to give you a real solution to your bio-banking and cryo-storage needs. Unlike any other solution ColdPoint® vials let you know the exact identity of your sample and its temperature from -196°C to 140°C without the need to heat the sample to clear frost.

No longer work with samples of unknown quality or unknown identification. Now you can track and monitor your samples at any time at cryogenic temperatures and through frost build-up without thawing. Patented.

ColdPoint® products are currently available in the USA only.

Labcon ColdPoint® vials with clear non-cytotoxic medical grade resin let you see sample volume and color easily.


ColdPoint® cryo vials with available MEMS chip in the base of the tube can be scanned and read using a reader that activates the embedded chip wirelessly.

ColdPoint® BlueChiip® enabled readers are available for single or multi-tube reading capability.coldpoint and bluechiip

Labcon ColdPoint® cryo vials do not include a rubber sealing ring to avoid the potential for contamination of your sample.
