Smart-Max Protocol – Cryo-SC

The Cryo-SC protocol software is an integral part of the Smart-Max system and provides a fully-automated method for cryopreservation of umbilical cord blood, allowing a safe,
reproducible and tightly controlled procedure.

Cryo-SC is a protocol designed to prepare an umbilical cord blood unit for long term storage. The functions of the protocol include controlled rate DMSO injection, cooling, and
homogenous mixing of the unit. It is possible to prepare one or two units simultaneously for storage. A data storage and transfer function allows the traceability of each unique unit.

Step-by- Step Workflow

  1. Connection of cord blood unit to DMSO extension line and DMSO syringe.
  2. Installation of unit, lines, and DMSO on Smart-Max device.
  3. Enter user-selectable parameters (pre-cooling time, injection volume, and time) and traceability
  4. Automated procedure
  5. End of procedure: cord blood unit ready for controlled rate freezer or freezing tank
