Freezing cells made safer thanks to new polymer

A new cryoprotectant polymer that dramatically improves the freezing of cells, has been discovered by researchers at the University of Warwick. The new polymers can reduce the amount of organic solvent required in cryopreservation (freezing cells) as well as giving more and healthier cells after thawing. Findings may help reduce cost and improve distribution of cells for cell-based therapies, diagnostics and research
