Cryogenically Storing Animal Cell Cultures

Corning Guide

Maintaining healthy, growing cell cultures is a demanding task made more difficult by the ever-present risk of their loss through accidents or contamination. In addition, actively growing cell cultures are not static but, like all populations of microorganisms, subject to age-related or environmentally induced changes which can result in their ongoing evolution and potential loss. These problems can be reduced by using cryogenic preservation, a process that effectively puts the cells into true suspended animation.
