Scientists have developed a method of freezing and defrosting of tissues and organs

A special method allows you to defrost frozen bodies, saving up to 80% of the cells alive. Technology scientists compare with the transformation of sand into glass. Living tissue is frozen without damaging the cells, and soft defrost retains the ability of the tissue to divide.

The main problem is freezing of tissue – formation in the cells of ice crystals, damaging living tissues. Crystals break the cell, which leads to her death. A special method of freezing with the use of glycerol allows you to save up to 80% of the cells alive.

Now scientists work over improvement of the methodology. They expect to get up to 99% of living cells after thawing. The technology, experts say, dates a new impetus transplantation and other surgical specialties.
