New methods to improve cryopreservation for immunotherapies using a bioinspired solution

The preservation of biological samples is critical to the success of experimental studies and clinical treatments in the emergent field of immunotherapy. Cryopreservation – keeping cells at sub-zero temperatures – slows metabolic activity significantly, enabling storage and transportation, as well as a return to functionality upon thaw. Of course, it’s not as simple as placing

New studies look at better materials and cold chain management strategies for improved cryopreservation

As new regenerative medicines advance through the clinical pipeline, cryopreservation – most simply described as storage of biological material at sub-freezing temperatures – becomes of increasing importance. While preservation of organs for transplantation involves maintaining organs in an “alive” state in the short window prior to transplantation at 2-8C, cryopreservation requires a different set of
