Subject: Cryovials for liquid phase storage

d; -webkit-nbsp-mode: space;-webkit-line-break: after-white-space'>


I am on the hunt for cryogenic vials that can withstand stor age in the liquid phase of LN2.

Everything I am finding must be stored above the liquid in t he gas phase.

Researchers are telling me these exist!  The  vial s we have now are clearly marked NOT to store in liquid phase and if you were to do this, when the warm up as you removed them, they pop.

If such vials do not exist I want to change the way they are storing!!

Appreciate your input all!  Thank you!
