Primarily as a cryopreservant (minimizes ice crystal formation which can
damage cells) for storage of several cell lines at below freezing
Also used as a solvent in some cases e.g.for x-gal.
There are several other uses, but these are the main ones. If you have more
specific queustions about it's usage then please e-mail me.
