Manufactured by Biosyn (a corporate rival of John Hammond’s, InGen) the Cryogenics Canister (Cryo-Can) was designed to aid Nedry in the surreptitious removal and transport of 10 viable dinosaur embryos from Jurassic Park.
Hidden within a heavily modified shaving cream can, the self-contained cooling unit could preserve the embryos for 36 hours. A two-tiered ‘pop-up’ centrifuge rack allowed the vials to be strategically seated for storage and then pushed into the bottom coil for protective transport. While Nedry never made it off the island with his Cryo-Can, nothing can stop you from owning your own!
Working closely with Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, Paragon FX Group’s team was given access to the original hero prop used in the film’s production. This close-up study of the original has given us the opportunity to replicate everything from the proper labels on the centrifuge tubes, right down to the very inventory tags that are present on the original prop as it sits in the studio archives.
Identical to the original, Paragon will be manufacturing this piece in metal. This multi-piece CNC machined aluminum replica will also feature a ‘pop- up’ centrifuge rack and of course, the entire unit can be seated within a Barbasol can. Each limited-edition replica will ship with 10 micro-centrifuge tubes w/ labels, Barbasol can and studio inventory tags.
