We specialize in providing cryogenic services to the medical and scientific communities including: storage, shipping, biorepository design, construction, and cryogenic equipment sales.
Our biorepository was designed and built by industry experts. Since our doors opened in 2005 we have provided world-class service to some of Canada’s most prestigious principle investigators, research institutes, clinical studies and biopharmaceutical communities.
Our experienced staff, redundant security systems and robust quality system ensure that samples are safely stored and maintained. Core Cryolab’s facility is located in Toronto General Hospital and is also home to umbilical cord blood stem cell samples that are processed and stored for two cord blood companies, Cells for Life Cord Blood Institute Inc. and Victoria Angel Registry of Hope, a public cord blood bank. Umbilical cord blood stem cells are used for transplant or cellular therapies to treat a variety of diseases. As such, our facility must be managed and operated in compliance with both regulatory and accreditation bodies. A true validation of our expertise and abilities has been demonstrated by the fact that 100% of the cord blood samples released for transplant have engrafted successfully.
Core is the only distributor of cryogenic equipment in Canada that is also an end user. Operating our biorepository and running an international cryogenic shipping business has given our team a superior understanding of the operational needs of our clients. Over the last decade we have helped design and build numerous biorepositories including some of the largest in Canada.
Core Cryo-Shipping began as a service to storage clients and over the last decade has grown into the biggest dedicated cryogenic shipping business in Canada. Our global reach in Cryo-Shipping services are utilized by the IVF community and serve as a key component in cold chain management within both the pharmaceutical and medical research industries. We are also the cryogenic service provider for World Courier, the most trusted specialty logistics company in the world.
Our mission is to raise the bar in terms of protecting the long term value of the samples stored in cryogenic facilities throughout Canada and beyond. We work to accomplish this through our comprehensive range of cryogenic related products and services for biorepositories with personalized service from our experienced staff.
