  • Researchers from the Division of Engineering at NYU Abu Dhabi, NYUAD, have developed a new technique that utilises filter paper to cryopreserve human cells, offering scientists an efficient alternative to conventional, long-term cryopreservation methods.
  • The new approach produces comparable results to the old one but requires significantly less storage space and offers great advantages in storing, managing, and distributing vials of cryopreserved cells.
  • Although effective for cell retrieval, this approach requires large spaces for storing a vast number of vials.
