Q:

How are Pancreatic Islets Shipped?

A:
Iselts are shipped ambient, overnight delivery and will arrive to the customer 24-48 hours after isolation. Product sizes of 100 K, 20 K, and 10 K IEQ are shipped in a Wilson Wolf G-Rex100 gas permeable cell culture device containing 500 ml of media (customer should reduce media volume to ~200 ml for culturing). Product sizes of 5 K and 2 K IEQ are shipped in a Wilson Wolf G-Rex10 gas permeable cell culture device containing 40 ml of media (customer should reduce media volume to ~15 ml for culturing). The additional media is added to prevent “sloshing” during transport. In addition to the media in the device, each shipment will also contain an additional 500 ml of media.
