Cryopreservation of human testicular diploid germ cell suspensions

Andrologia, 03/23/2012

The semen and tissue cryopreservation methods appeared to be inadequate for diploid germ cell suspensions, and programmed slow freezing gave significantly lower results than open pulled straw vitrification; the latter was found to be the protocol that best preserved cell viability. The vitrification of isolated human diploid germ cells is innovative and constitutes valuable information for cryopreservation in cases of transplants or in vitro maturation.
