BACKGROUND: The development of encapsulation technologies has played an important role in improving cryopreservation outcomes for many cell and tissue types over the past 20 years. Alginate encapsulation cryopreservation (AECryo) has been incorporated into a range of applications in biotechnology, species conservation and clinical therapies, using cells from many different phyla, including higher plants, animal and human cells. This review describes the background to the origins of AECryo, the development of AECryo in higher plant tissues, broadening to current applications in algal conservation, the roles for AECryo in preserving phytodiversity, fungal species and in animal and human cells. OBJECTIVE: The main aims are to provide information resources on AECryo in different areas of biology and to stimulate new ideas for wider applications and future improvement. The translation of this useful biopreservation strategy into new opportunities for cell cryopreservation and storage at non-freezing temperatures are also discussed.

More about this publication?
  • CryoLetters is a bimonthly international journal for low temperature sciences, including cryobiology, cryopreservation or vitrification of cells and tissues, chemical and physical aspects of freezing and drying, and studies involving ecology of cold environments, and cold adaptation

    The journal publishes original research reports, authoritative reviews, technical developments and commissioned book reviews of studies of the effects produced by low temperatures on a wide variety of scientific and technical processes, or those involving low temperature techniques in the investigation of physical, chemical, biological and ecological problems.
