Focus: Identifying and solving problems in the integrity of tissue samples after cryopreservation. The effective cryopreservation of living tissue would be a significant achievement for areas ranging from medicine to space exploration. The current methods for preserving living cells and tissue are problematic due to toxic cryopreservation agents and the crystallization of water. This study used three agents with vitrification of rat smooth muscle tissue rings. The final results were compared against the commonly used 10% DMSO.
