This miniature cryogenic containment unit was designed by Lewis Dodgson to look like an ordinary can of Barbasol shaving cream. A compartmentalized unit was made to easily insert the embryos, and a coolant system would keep the embryos fresh for thirty-six hours. As an added feature, the cryo-can was able to emit real shaving cream to justify transport through the customs regulations.
The cryo-can was lost by Dennis Nedry when he was attacked by a Dilophosaurus on his way to the East Dock. It fell down a hill and was covered in mud.
