What is Embryo Storage?
Embryo storage is storage of a fertilized egg in liquid nitrogen for future use. It is stored through cryopreservation, a process where cells are preserved by cooling to very low temperatures at −196 °C using liquid nitrogen. At low enough temperatures, chemical activity which might cause damage to the biological material in question is effectively stopped.
