Our Clients

iosBio, a UK-based biotech company, has developed a platform for delivering the next generation of thermostable oral vaccines, eliminating the need for the ‘ultra-cold and cold chain’ in vaccine distribution and administration. This innovative technology aims to make vaccine rollouts self-administered, more efficacious, lower cost and accessible worldwide.

iosBio’s vaccines are based on an adenovirus viral vector and a proprietary cell line. To ensure the security and integrity of their irreplaceable preclinical samples and cell lines generated over the past 20 years, iosBio has partnered with CyteTech BioBank for off-site cryo-storage at both -80°C and LN2 temperatures.

To learn more about iosBio and their ground-breaking work in vaccine technology, please visit their website.

Outsourcing these critical samples was a significant concern for us, but after thoroughly evaluating CyteTech BioBank’s facilities, processes, and track record, we were confident in their ability to maintain the integrity of our materials. Their comprehensive laboratory information management system and QMS ensure the ongoing traceability of our samples. Moreover, their responsiveness and flexibility allow us to access our samples at short notice whenever needed.

For years, CyteTech Biobank has provided us with exceptional LN2 storage solutions. Their expertise and dedication have been invaluable to our research and development work. We highly recommend their services to any organization in need of secure, reliable storage for their biological materials.
