BioLife Solutions, Inc. invented cryopreservation, thawing, and cold chain transport technologies and also announced three new patents for the same. The company also received a European Patent for its Apparatuses and Compositions for the Cryopreservation of Cellular Monolayers.
Shinshu University, Japan, developed a technology to cryopreserve animal cells without using cryoprotectants by the super flash freezing method. This technology rapidly freezes cells by encapsulating cells in microdroplets with inkjet cell printing technology and discharging them onto a liquid nitrogen-cooled glass substrate.
