The ThawSTAR Thawing System replaces unstandardized manual methods of thawing samples with controlled profile thawing and can be leveraged early in the R&D phase and scaled into commercial manufacturing and point of care.
Speck Design was charged with creating an automated cell thawing device that added repeatability and consistency to the warming process used to revive the cryo-preserved cells. The product needed to eliminate thawing errors due to human mistakes (e.g. subjective determinations, distractions, etc). Several factors including cell size and choice of cryopreservation media needed to be considered since these can affect the optimal thawing profile, viability, and function.

Before the device, the thawing was performed by lab technicians using the hot water bath technique. The ThawStar has drastically improved this process forever and is becoming an integral part of the existing and future BioCision freezing and thawing product families. The “look and feel” of the product reflected the fun, colorful, and playful experience of the cool tools product lines. The cell thawing device was the next addition to a set of tools that promote better yields and outcomes through improved standardization.
