Table 1 Structural maintenance and cell viability after vitrification of triple-layered rabbit chondrocyte sheets

From: Development of a novel vitrification method for chondrocyte sheets

Vitrification method Presence of COOH-PLL in VS* No. of cell sheets recovered without fracture / No. of cell sheets examined (%) Cell viability (mean ± SEM)
Non-vitrified control   8/8 (100) 94.6 ± 0.5a
Coating + 10/10 (100) 92.1 ± 0.9a
- 1/8 (12.5) 91.9 ± 0.7a
Envelope + 7/7 (100) 86.8 ± 0.7b
Dish + 7/7 (100) 77.6 ± 3.15c
