With the Petaka you can transport live cells for long distances at normal ambient temperatures. Avoiding the necessity of freezing
or dry ice, large quantities of cells can be shipped international at a fraction of the price reducing logistics cost up to 80%. On
arrival, cells would have avoided the double handling & exposure to stress causing freezing media & enabling the cell culture
to be examined and expanded at the researchers own convenience

Cells at mild hypoxia, inside Petaka, at normal temperatures, remain in a dormant state (pausing) for days, even weeks.
decreases progressively depending on the cell type. CHO-K1 cells, for example, can travel for 3 to 4 weeks maintaining 75% viability.
Some tumor cells, like HeLa, can travel for a month or more.
