Step-by-step Cryopreservation First Aid Manual

Important information regarding the first aid

  • IMPORTANT: Cryopreservation first-aid should only and exclusively be performed after the legal pronouncement of death has taken place. Otherwise, the body might not be released to the cryopreservation provider in time which leads to EXTREMELY low quality preservation. DO NOT DO ANYTHING BEFORE LEGAL PRONOUNCEMENT!
  • Special medical knowledge is usually not required to perform these steps, but it’s always good to know why these procedures are done the way they are.
  • The ones providing the first aid should have attended a local training session or one of our on-site training at Tomorrow biostasis. In certain cases when there is no one with training, one can follow the provided manual to perform the procedures.
