Back to Practical Handbook of Cellular Therapy Cryopreservation
Long-term storage of cryopreserved hematopoietic cells and their recovery after thawing are of critical importance in both traditional and novel cellular therapies.
The increasing use of traditional hematopoietic cell therapies—as well as the emerging potential of novel regenerative medicine therapies—highlights the importance of the cryopreservation process and its impact on cell yield, viability, and function. This Practical Handbook of Cellular Cryopreservation explains the “nuts and bolts” of the cryopreservation process from beginning to end: which freezers are used for which products, the fundamentals of freezing cells without damage, how to read freezing curves, how to handle products after an abnormality occurs, when to validate/verify/qualify, and so much more. This volume is packed with color illustrations that bring additional clarity to these detailed discussions.
- Cellular cryopreservation overview
