By freezing cell lines at cryogenic temperatures, different cell types can be stored for future use without the risk of contamination or genetic alterations. Cryopreservation is a meticulous process and poses several challenges. Take a closer look at the process of cryopreservation, which role it plays for cell banking, and which challenges have to be overcome to reach the successful cryopreservation of cells. Some methods for overcoming cryopreservation challenges include cryoprotectants, protective packaging, and an exemplary cryopreservation protocol.
