Cell Storing and Cell Freezing Protocols Protocol Links
Cryogenic Preservation and Storage of Animal Cells Protocol Cryogenic preservation (storage below -100°C) of cell cultures is widely used to maintain backups or reserves of cells without the associated effort and expense of feeding and caring for them. The success of the freezing process depends on four critical areas: Proper handling and gentle harvesting of the cultures; Correct use of the cryoprotective agent; A controlled rate of freezing; Storage under proper cryogenic conditions.
Long Term Lambda Phage Storage Protocol No special treatment is required to prepare a lysate for the active collection. The following procedure should be used for long-term storage of lambda clones in the archival collections. The phage are diluted in media containing 7% DMSO and frozen at -80 degrees C.
