Cryotop® SC is an evolution in vitrification with the closed system of the successful Cryotop®. This sealed protocol ensures success during vitrification guaranteeing safe storage.

Cryotop® SC continues to obtain the same excellent results as its Open System version.


With our closed system the device is sealed within a straw, it allows the vitrification of the specimens without them entering into direct contact with the liquid nitrogen. This sealed protocol ensures success during vitrification guaranteeing safe storage.


Highest survival rates

Cryotop® Method offers proof of its outstanding results. Our survival rates over 90% are backed up by numerous clinical studies with the biggest sample sizes in the market.
Cryotop® Survival rates in human specimen


Cryotop® SC is a vitrification device consisting of a fine strip of transparent film connected to a plastic handle resistant to liquid nitrogen. Its design allows the loading of specimens for vitrification with a minimum volume (0.1 µl), a differentiating factor when achieving the best survival rates


Main Characteristics:

• External straw with widened end, allowing the easy insertion of the Cryotop® SC. Minimum thickness aids the cooling rate.
• Conical join between the strip of film and the plastic body; improves insertion, preventing abrupt entry.
• L shaped tip to protect the sample during insertion of the Cryotop® into the external straw.
• Black mark to know on which side the specimens must be loaded (L facing upwards); especially useful during warming.
• Manufactured in malleable plastic resistant to liquid nitrogen.
• Available in packs of 10 units.
