Abstract

We have discovered that a microchip has an unexpected effect for cryopreservation of adhered mammalian cells. Specifically, adhered 4 cell types inside microchips were more likely to survive after cryopreservation at-80°C than those on control culture dishes. Cell phenotypes were well maintained. Our discovery will lead to a new application of microchips to ready-to-use cell assay platforms.
