Technologies for a better cell protection during storage
With advances in science, the need for medium- and long-term storage of biological tissues and in particular stem cells is increasing. Storage solutions are introduced to make these tissues available for biological and medical purposes at different time spans. The key issue is to ensure the integrity of the DNA molecule during storage and suitable protection of it.
The cryogenised storage solution developed includes protection against natural radioactivity and cosmic rays - major issues to ensure cell protection within a long term storage program. It is based on designing a cryostat that meets these criteria.
Storage solutions for all biological tissues destined to be stored for a long time span at low temperatures.
STATE OF PROGRESS
A storage prototype has been designed and installed to begin tests on cells. A scale demonstrator is currently being developed and will be available at the mid 2019.
