Cellular dehydration and shrinkage due to the osmotic outflow through the cell membrane (slow cooling) One of damaging factors of cryopreservation Reduction of the effect: cryoprotective agents such as dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) or ethylene glycol (EG) lowering the freezing point. The reason: an increase in the con- centration of salt in the extracellular solution because of freezing of the extracellular water. 2

- the Stefan condition (mass conservation law) - the osmotic outflow - the fluid density - the normal velocity of the cell boundary - the unfrozen part volume of the pore - the intracellular salt concentration (constant) - the extracellular salt concentration (variable), - the unfrozen water content W c out frozen extracellular liquid cell with intracellular liquid unfrozen extracellular liquid with the increased salt con- centration osmotic outflow tends to balance intra- and extracellular salt con- centration c in Osmotic dehydration of cells during freezing 4 Frémond, M.

Drawbacks Time- and space-consuming numerical procedures. The region to discretize should be much larger than the object to simulate. Accounting for the tension effects (proportional to the curvature) is hardly possible. 10 Development of more advantageous numerical techniques

21 Conclusions Very fast numerical method for the simulation of the cell shrinkage under anisotropic osmotic flows is developed. The method allows us to compute the evolution of the cell boundary with accounting for the tension effects. These techniques are suitable for computing of front propagation in problems where the shape evolution is described by a Hamilton-Jacobi equation with the Hamiltonian function being neither convex nor concave in impulse variables.
