Abstract

Cryoprotectants (CPA), by definition, are chemicals that enhance, improve or increase postthaw survival of frozen cells. All CPAs are highly soluble in water; many are derivatives of alcohols or sugars. There are two general CPA classes, those that are permeable and those that are impermeable to cells. The principal difference between the two classes is their molecular weights, the permeants being less than 100 daltons.
