A Comparison of Liquid Nitrogen and Liquid Nitrogen-free Cell Freezers for Research: Benefits and DrawbacksHaving a proper cryopreservation protocol is critical for many researchers that need to preserve and store biological samples. This is especially important for researchers in cell biology, regenerative medicine, and/or biobanking. The goal of a cryopreservation...
How Mechanical Stretching Can Help Tissue Engineering ResearchIn tissue engineering experiments, researchers often focus on techniques for growing cells on synthetic materials. Natural tissue has complex 3D structures with different cell types located in specific regions that are connected with a matrix of protein...
Cell Viability After Cryopreservation: The Lowdown
The most important part of cryopreservation is cell viability after thawing. Cells can remain viable for years in a state of suspended animation under cryopreservation.

Understanding Mechanotransduction and Its Importance in Cell Biology
Mechanotransduction is the study of how cells respond to forces and other stresses in their natural environment.
Optimal Freeze Protocol for Cryopreservation of Cultured Cells
A good freeze protocol for cells maximizes research for safe long-term use. Without proper cryopreservation, we sacrifice cell viability.
