A novel ice nucleating agent

A Greek research team that has been working on Cryobiology and Biological Ice Nucleation for almost two decades have identified a novel ice nucleating agent, using a recently developed platform. Preliminary experiments with ram sperm produced excellent results regarding the sperm’s motility.

This innovation might have an application in fish gametes’ cryopreservation. The application has been successfully applied in ram sperm, and a colleague from the Technological Educational Institution of Thessaly is interested to apply this in fish gametes as well.
