CELLSHIP® has been developed to provide an alternative to cryopreservation for
the transport and short-term storage of mammalian cell lines. A simple and
low-cost way to transport or store cells at ambient temperatures.

CELLSHIP® has been developed as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership
(Innovate UK) between Life Science Group Limited and Coventry University.

CELLSHIP® provides a simple, cost effective alternative to using logistically
challenging and expensive dry ice, or dry shippers. Cells can now be
transported between institutions, biomanufacturers and cell based therapy
manufacturing sites and the clinic, all at ambient temperatures.

The protocol requires minimal cell manipulation, reducing the risk of
contamination and improving efficiency within the laboratory.


  • Culture cells using standard growth media and conditions.
  • Harvest cells using your standard method for sub culturing and centrifuge at
    room temperature for 5 min at 180 x g. Discard the supernatant.
  • Resuspend cells in in 2 3 mL of CELLSHIP® and centrifuge as before.Resuspend cells in 2 mL of CELLSHIP® and transfer to a 2 mL cryotube for transport.


  • Gently resuspended the cells and transfer to the appropriate volume of
    complete medium and culture using standard conditions.

There is no need to remove CELLSHIP® before recovering the cells.

To date, CELLSHIP® has been validated for up to 120 h transport/storage at
ambient temperatures.

CELLSHIP® cell shipment medium is available WITH or WITHOUT insulin.
