Creating Greater Value For Our Customers & End-Users

On October 30, 2020, Milton Street Capital announced the simultaneous acquisition of the Life Sciences business of Worthington Industries (formerly Taylor-Wharton CryoScience products) and International Cryogenics, Inc. These legacy cryogenic biomedical equipment manufacturers then began operation as IC Biomedical.

Capitalizing on a 65-year legacy of cold chain storage and transport technology, IC Biomedical is bringing new life to the cryogenic equipment market. IC Biomedical is building the highest-quality cryogenic storage and transport systems for the global biomedical research and development, healthcare, biorepository, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, IVF and animal husbandry semen markets.

In March 2021, IC Biomedical moved into a new medical-grade manufacturing facility located in Cartersville, Georgia. One year later, IC Biomedical’s Quality Management System (QMS) achieved ISO 13485:2016 certification, which shows our total commitment to delivering the very best cryogenic products.

Aluminum vessels include dewars, small freezers (extended time and high-capacity models), laboratory systems for vial storage and vapor shippers. Stainless steel high-capacity freezers include our traditional LABS and K-Series lines, plus our new, innovative next-generation Evolution and Revolution Series freezers.

IC Biomedical is led by CEO Steve Shaw, who has more than 26 years of cryogenic biomedical market experience that includes serving as President of Chart Industries’ former BioMedical Group (MVE and Caire).

By uniting with the best global distribution network, sourcing from trusted, high-quality suppliers and using the knowledge earned through decades of industry innovation, IC Biomedical is the future of cryogenic storage and transport.
