Transgenic Mouse Core Facility
The term cryo-preservation consists of the Greek word cryo (meaning »cold«) and »preserve« (to maintain, save, store). Cryo-preservation or cryo-conservation is a process to freeze and store cells and tissue. These can be stored (cryopreserved) in liquid nitrogen for years at a temperature of minus 196 degrees Celsius without becoming damaged or ageing. Here we show tutorials of two established techniques currently in use at our facility.
