placenta, umbilical cord, amniotic membrane, serum, placental cells, cord blood, cryopreservation


The paper covers the actual tasks in low temperature storage of such placental biological derivatives as: cell-free material, cell suspensions, placental tissue, umbilical cord and fetal membranes. Depending on the purposes for biological specimen storage the main research directions in this field are as follows: diagnostic, experimental, clinical, establishment of donor or personal low temperature bank. Nowadays of a top priority is designing the methods for freeze-drying, hypothermic storage, and cryopreservation with different temperature regimens.
