Cryobiology and carbon dioxide


The science of life at low temperatures, literally referring to cryobiology, has a number of applicable areas when considering carbon dioxide (CO2) as a merchant gas.

Often, this product would be sought as a USP (United States Pharmacopeia), which is a very small percentage of the merchant fleet of plants available – however, this grade would be strictly used as a respiratory stimulant, and often for many applications considered to have a medical basis behind the use.

The refrigeration value available and utilised in a range of applications, when referring to cryobiology, would range from a moderate cooling effect – moderately hypothermic – to cryogenic temperatures.

The application of carbon dioxide can affect biological materials ranging from proteins, cells, tissues, organs, and ultimately organisms. More specifically, and categorically speaking, this application can include the following:
