Book Description

This is the first text of its kind to address the breadth of the field of biopreservation – the functional maintenance of biologically derived products. The book expertly integrates recent molecular-based discoveries with classically-based biopreservation basics, offering a new look at advances in the emerging regenerative medicine arena. In addition to general concepts of biopreservation, it includes chapters detailing subspecialty principles, such as biologically active macromolecules, stem cells, and gene therapy, as well as new protocols for cell, tissue, and organ preservation. This is a fundamental "how-to" guide for anyone involved in the biopreservation sciences.
