Mention the characteristics of cryopreservation



Characteristics of cryopreservation in points:

  1. Low-Temperature Storage: Cryopreservation involves cooling biological materials, such as cells, tissues, and organs, to very low temperatures, typically below -130°C (-202°F), to halt metabolic processes and prevent degradation.
  2. Prevention of Ice Formation: Specialized cryoprotectants are used to prevent the formation of damaging ice crystals within the biological sample during freezing, preserving cellular integrity.
