RF Excited Magnetic Nanoparticles May Help Achieve Uniform Warming of Bulky Vitrified Systems

RF Excited Magnetic Nanoparticles May Help Achieve Uniform Warming of Bulky Vitrified Systems

Successful techniques for cryopreserving bulk biomaterials and organ systems would transform current approaches to transplantation and regenerative medicine. However, while vitrified cryopreservation holds great promise, practical application has been limited to smaller systems (cells and thin tissues) due to diffusive heat and mass transfer limitations, which are typically manifested as devitrification and cracking failures during thaw.
