- ... Advances in cryopreservation of gametes indicate that slow cooling protocols will soon be replaced by fast cooling methods. Vitrification, a process in which liquid water is converted into a glass-like amorphous solid without any ice formation, normally requires plunging directly into liquid nitrogen in order to achieve high cooling rates. This leads to strong nitrogen vaporization around the samp ...
