Transport and Cell Thawing System for Cell Therapy Products, Item No. AST-700

ThawSTAR® AT6 Transport and Thawing System for AT-Closed Vial® improves the overall handling of cell therapies by combining the 6ml AT-Closed Vial technology with Astero Bio’s breakthrough cell therapy thawing system.

When thawing cells in a clinic, your thawing protocol should meet the same high standards of care used during sample collection and cryopreservation. The ThawSTAR® AT6 Thawing Instrument replaces unstandardized manual methods with controlled profile thawing, and can be leveraged early in the R&D phase and scaled into commercial manufacturing and point-of‑care. For clinical applications, ThawSTAR instruments can incorporate custom tuning using advanced algorithms for the specific cell therapy product under development. Ensuring that the optimal thaw rate and cell health is achieved protects the integrity of therapeutic cells while mitigating risk to the patient.
