The corneal storage at 31°C, also called organ culture, is the common corneal storage technique in Europe. This method, which is more similar to the physiological conditions if compared to corneal storage at 4°C, allows borderline cells to be recovered, also providing sufficient time to obtain the results of microbiological tests before transplantation.

Tissue-C and Carry-C are the CE marked Alchimia media for corneal storage at 31°C, and transport at room temperature, respectively.

The Tissue-C commercial package also contains CornealFloat, the accessory designed to maintain the cornea suspended in the medium during the culture period.

The Carry-C commercial package includes additional anti-tamper closures, to replace the original closure after bottle opening and to safely seal it when containing the cornea suitable for transplantation, thus providing greater safety to surgeons and patients.
