A Novel Method for CryoPreservation of Cells in Monolayers


Researchers at the University of Alberta have developed a novel method to cryopreserve cells while adhered in a monolayer configuration. This method can preserve cells on a substrate and provide high post-thaw cell viability. Your company could then supply cryopreserved bioengineered cell monolayers directly in the desired configuration for immediate use.





  • Allows cryopreservation of cells in monolayers; demonstrated for endothelial cells
  • Ready to use configuration eliminates the need for advanced culture facilities
  • Cryopreserved cells ready for immediate use for modelling human diseases, drug screening and research applications
