Abstract

This work, for the first time, demonstrates cryopreservation of mammalian cells within paper platforms. Cryopreserved cells using the novel method can be released using a thawing device that we developed. Alternatively, cells can be left within the paper after thawing, which permits 3D cell culture within the paper. Strikingly, our results showed that some portion of cells remain within the paper even after release steps, which can also be utilized for 3D cell culture.
