The liquid nitrogen dewars seen here are used for cryopreservation and long-term storage of our valuable cell lines/stocks. In addition to serving as our back-up supply, storage of cells in this way reduces the time and cost of keeping cells in culture and reduces changes in the cells that occur over time, effectively freezing biological time in-between experiments.
