It's cryo-preservation. 'Cryo' simply means ultra-low temperature. The cryopreservation is the technique employed to conserve genetic resources under very low temperature, usually at -196 degree Celcius in liquid nitrogen. It's the same technique applied in sperm banks, ovum banks and seed banks to preserve the target materials in viable and good conditions for a very long time, hundreds of years and more.
End of lecture. Class dismiss. :-P
I was privileged to be able to meet up with my old friends, the cryopreservation experts. They were my great gurus and still is.
Prof. C (second from right) is a prominent figure in this field world wide. I was honoured to be able to learn from him for years. At the age of 70s, he is still very active.
I last met Dr. E from France in person some 15 years ago, when i was still, erm.. very young. His publications and writings had always inspire me.
And of course, i was delighted to be able to meet up with my fellow friends too. We did research in the same lab.
My busy schedule had stopped me from updating this blog frequently. But i'm very thankful to my blog readers for the support.
