THAWSTAR™ AUTOMATED CELL THAWING SYSTEM
BioCision came to Speck Design to create an automated cell thawing device that is intended to bring repeatability and consistency to the warming process used to revive the cryo-preserved cells. The product was created to eliminate thawing errors due to human mistakes (e.g. subjective determinations, distractions, etc).
Before the device, the thawing was performed by lab technicians using the hot water bath technique.
The product succeeded in becoming an integral part of the existing and future BioCision freezing and thawing product families. The “look and feel” of the product reflected the fun, colorful, and playful experience of the cool tools product lines. The cell thawing device was the next addition to a set of tools that promote better yields and outcomes through improved standardization.
