Bone marrow frozen with glycerol and stored at -69 to 79 °C for 3 to 9 years was compared with bone marrow frozen with DMSO and stored for 3 years in liquid nitrogen (-120 to -196 °C). It was found that bone marrow cells stored in Dry Ice were almost entirely destroyed after 3 years of storage, while bone marrow cells in liquid nitrogen were largely intact after 3-year storage.
