Engineered tissue for clinical use must be evaluated, inventoried, and delivered to the recipient. This is time intensive and requires a means of sustaining cell viability prior to implantation. Tissue stored at ambient temperature or warmer requires expensive human involvement to satisfy metabolic demands and risks infection and biological alteration. At low temperatures, i.e., below - 125 degrees C, tissues have no metabolic demands. These cold environments can be conveniently attained with… CONTINUE READING
