A cryoprotectant is a substance used to protect biological tissue from freezing damage (i.e. that due to ice formation). Arctic and Antarctic insects, fish and amphibians create cryoprotectants (antifreeze compounds and antifreeze proteins) in their bodies to minimize freezing damage during cold winter otectants are also used to preserve living materials in the study of biology. Biopreservation is the science of extending the shelf life (storage time) of biological systems. The scientific field of biopreservation can be broadly classified into three distinct but interrelated research areas: Cryopreservation (storage by freezing), Desiccation (storage by drying) and Freeze-Drying (storage by freezing first and then sublimating the frozen water).Cited by: 2.   CRYOBIOL () Modes of Interaction of Cryoprotectants with Membrane Phospholipids during Freezing THOMAS J. ANCHORDOGUY, ALAN S. RUDOLPH, JOHN F. CARPENTER, AND JOHN H. CROWE Department of Zoology, University of California, Davis, California The abilities of a variety of compounds to inhibit liposome fusion during freeze/thaw were assessed by resonance energy by: Pregnancy rate and survival in culture of in vitro fertilized bovine embryos frozen in various cryoprotectants and thawed using a one-step system.

This book covers the principles of cryopreservation as they relate the preservation of viable cells and cell materials being developed for biopharmaceutical applications. Topics include: the principles of freezing and thawing cells, physiochemical phenomena, process and system design options, method selection considerations, preservation. cryoprotectants, although only a handful are used routinely in cryobiology (2). The best and most commonly used cry-oprotectants are a class of cryoprotectants called penetrating cryoprotectants. Penetrat-ing cryoprotectants are small molecules that easily penetrate cell membranes. The molec-ular mass of penetrating cryoprotectants is. The major part of Department's activity is devoted to scientific trend related to the investigation of phase transitions and the control ways of in combined cryobiological systems, effect of cryoprotectants, membranotropic, biologically active compounds on these processes, which in general are multicomponent cryoprotective media. A general observation in the cryopreservation of cells and other biological systems is that each system has a specific optimal cooling rate, with decreased survival at cooling rates that are too low (slow-cooling damage) or too high (fast-cooling damage) (Mazur et al., ).

High concentration of perforating cryoprotectants usage for the intent of cells protection such as DMSO, ethene ethanediol and dimethyformamide can do toxicity (Meryman, ). The more in the figure of methyl group (R-CH3), the stronger is the cryoprotectants (Best, ). Non-penetrating Cryoprotectants. One of the methods under investigation is the combination of vacuum impregnation (VI) with cryoprotectants and the application of a pulsed electric field (PEF) to the plant tissue prior to freezing.   Nevertheless, suitable combinations of cryoprotectants and regimes of cooling and rinsing during warming often allow successful cryopreservation of biological materials, particularly cell suspensions or thin samples like; Semen Blood Stem cell umbilical cord blood Embryo(2,4, or 8 cell) Plant(seed and shoot) Egg (oocytes).   1. Introduction. Marine microalgae are a key diet component in finfish and shellfish aquaculture (De Pauw and Persoone, ).As the aquaculture industry expands (), there is a demand for marine microalgae that cannot be met by the conventional methods used in hatcheries, leading to the use of substitutes with mediocre results and several problems (Borowitzka, ).
