In 2019 Air Liquide created a unique biobanking network with biobanks in Italy, France and Germany under the umbrella of BioKryo to support sample management of clinical trials.

The GMP compliant biobanks store the biological material e.g. in the vapor phase of Liquid Nitrogen or at -80 °C in Freezer. The biobanks of this network – CryoPal in Paris, France, Isenet-biobanking in Milano, Italy, and BioKryo in Sulzbach, Germany – can store samples up to BSL II, e.g., diagnostic samples from Covid-19 patients in separated storage compartments.

This service includes all kind of logistics support as well as provision of dry ice, packing or dry shippers.
