About Cryologics, Inc.
Cryologics specializes in microbiological techniques used to prepare and cryopreserve (“freeze”) microorganisms into a standardized format (concentration). A pharmaceutical or biotechnology client submits its in-house microbial isolates to Cryologics, which will culture them and convert them into a customized product. Converting the client’s in-house microorganisms into this format enables the client to use them in a wide variety of QC testing required by regulatory agencies.
Our mission is simple….
To provide services and products in strict compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices, in a timely manner, and at a straightforward and competitive price. We believe our role is not simply a supplier, but to partner with our clients as fellow microbiologists for the goal of meeting their needs.
