An introduction to…Cryobio equipment


The primary function of cryobio freezing systems is to block, or at least slow down, intracellular functions without damaging the physicochemical structures on which these functions depend.

Progress in the field of cryobionics has perhaps been delayed by the lack of equipment and given that biological materials of either plant or animal origin consist of greater than 50% water, finding a solution was critical to progress.

The preservation of biological matter was clinically important to enable the storage of human and animal tissue in growing volumes. Such tissue was required for vaccine production, stem cell work, research into human fertility, regenerative medicine such as in cancer treatment and in animal husbandry, botanical studies, aquaculture, and seed and fungi banking in conservation.
