Biological Effects of Low Temperatures

Part of the Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering book series (BIOMEDICAL)

The degree of the cell injury caused by low temperatures depends on the freezing protocol (the cooling rate, the thawing rate, the exposition duration, the minimal temperature) as well as on the cell environment (an isolated cell in the solution, a densily packed ensemble of the cells in the tissue sample— in vitro; the cells in a living organism— in vivo).
