Hi. I am interested in dehydrating bacterial cells tho don't have any idea
where to start looking for info concerning it. Has anyone everdone it?
My idea is based on freezing the cells perhaps with liquid nitrogen. anyone
know anything about cryogenics? The problem I see with liquid nitrogen is
that the cell contents may shatter. Anyway I am looking for a way to
dehydrate the cells preserving them totally so that i could then rehydrate
them and that they are fully functional.
I haven't had any experience with this before and only had the idea in the
bath (Eureka!!! *grin* ) last night.
Thanx in advance.
Please mail me directly with any info.
