IMPROVED SINGLE-MODE ELECTROMAGNETIC RESONANCE (SMER) REWARMING OF LARGE BIOMATERIALS
Shen Ren - Instructor, Seattle University, Seattle, WA, USA; Affiliate Assistant Teaching Professor, Associate Director, Center for Cryo-biomedical Engineering and Artificial Organs, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
Rapid and uniform heating generated by single-mode electromagnetic resonance (SMER) rewarming has been proved to be promising for the rewarming of cryopreserved large samples. The aim of this seminar is to discuss the key challenges of the electromagnetic heating and optimization of the SMER technology.
APPLICATION OF NANOPARTICLES IN CRYOPRESERVATION OF PLANT TISSUES
Dariusz Kulus - Assistant Professor, Head of the Laboratory of Ornamental Plants and Vegetable Crops at the Faculty of Agriculture and Biotechnology, Bydgoszcz University of Science and Technology, Poland
Application of nanoparticles may greatly improve the effectiveness of cryopreservation protocols and ought to be carefully explored. The aim of this seminar is to present some recent findings of the effect of various nanoparticles on the in vitro and ex vitro development of plants, particularly concerning cryobiology studies.
