Biobanking & Cryobanking

Biobanking & Cryobanking

Cryobanking repositories are increasing rapidly worldwide in both Liquid Nitrogen storage as well as vapour phase storage. Millions of Euros of value are stored in tanks with a very limited amount of control. Historically controller manufacturers for not offer the ability to monitor and alarm in case of automatic filling issues. These kinds of issues can lead to catastrophic failures endangering the life and health of staff members or damage to the samples themselves.

XiltriX and Cryo Products jointly developed a solution which mitigates these risks and offers full control of any brand of Cryo vessel. This new solution is called CryoXiltriX and offers the best of Liquid Nitrogen Control as well as real-time Biobank monitoring and alarm services.


The New CryoFill 2.0 controller is MDR class 2a certified and can be retrofitted to any brand and type of cryo vessel that is able to autofill. The CryoFill offers hot gas bypass, quick defog and liquid level monitoring as standard. The new One-Fill-All-Fill (OFAF) function offers more convenience and less Liquid Nitrogen consumption.

Turnkey projects

Customers having issues with their repositories or are interested in building a state of the art repository with modern control systems, can turn to the CryoXiltriX solution. National and International project have been successfully executed with the help of our experienced specialists. Please read our CryoXiltriX case studies for more detailed information.

If retrofitting existing or new tanks if not possible. XiltriX can still offer Biobank Monitoring for both liquid filled dewars of all shapes and sizes and tanks of different brands other types of controllers.

Liquid dewars are measured using a temperature level sensor

  • Data on both minimum level and temperature
  • Data on vessel filling and lid openings

Vapour phase vessels are measured using a temperature sensor and digital input

  • Data on temperature at warmest position
  • Data on when vessel controller senses a problem

5 Pitfalls when Measuring Surface Temperatures (and how to fix them)

Measuring surface temperature in laboratories is not as easy as it sounds. Heated surfaces are frequently used to heat samples (even embryos), but can the display temperature of a heated surface actually be trusted?

Last summer Dr Xil T-Rex travelled the world. The XiltriX celebration comity was very interested in where the Dr went and asked his travel compagnons to make pictures of as many places as possible.

“Since the XiltriX International B.V. system was supplied and installed in 2016 at the IITA Genetic Resources Centre (GRC), it showed effectiveness, stability and easy handling for the inventory and monitoring of IITA cryobank.”
