Definition of Term

cryogenic storage
(English) The preservation of seeds, semen, embryos, or micro-organisms at extremely low temperatures, below -130°C . At these temperatures, water is absent, molecular kinetic energy is low, diffusion is virtually nil, and storage potential is expected to be extremely long. For fish, only sperms can be stored successfully. (See also: gene bank, ex-situ, conservation)
conservation cryogénique
(French) La conservation de semences, sperme, embryons, ou micro-organismes à températures extrêmement basses, en dessous -130°C. A ces températures, l'eau est absente, l'énergie cinétique moléculaire est basse, la diffusion est pratiquement rien, et le stockage potentiel est attendu d'être extrêmement long. Chez les poissons, seules les spermes peuvent être entreposés avec succès. (See also: gene bank, ex-situ, conservation)
depósito criogénico
(Portuguese) Preservação de sementes, sémen, embriões ou microorganismos a baixas temperaturas (menos de 130ºC). A estas temperaturas a água é inexistente, a energia cinética molecular é baixa, a difusão é virtualmente nula e o período de armazenamento pode ser extremamente longo. (See also: gene bank, ex-situ, conservation)
