DMSO is a polar aprotic solvent used in chemical reactions, in polymerase chain reactions and as a cryoprotectant vitrification agent for the preservation of cells, tissues and organs. DMSO is used in cell freezing media to protect cells from ice crystal induced mechanical injury. It is used for frozen storage of primary, sub-cultured, and recombinant heteroploid and hybridoma cell lines, embryonic stem cells and hematopoietic stem cells. DMSO is frequently used in the combinations with BSA or fetal bovine serum.
