Summary of "Foundations of modeling in cryobiology-III: Inward solidification of a ternary solution towards a permeable spherical cell in the dilute limit."

In the previous two manuscripts we outlined the general theory of heat and mass transport in a cell-liquid-ice system with general boundaries and nonideal and nondilute assumptions. Here we simplify the models considerably by presenting a reduction to a spherically symmetric system-a spherical cell with an encroaching spherical ice front. We also reduce to linear approximations of the nonideal nondilute models, essentially assuming dilute and ideal conditions. We derive the resulting nondimensional combined heat and mass transport model for a ternary solution and present numerical solutions. We include an analysis of the effects of varying some nondimensional parameters on rates of ice growth with comments on the necessity of models that account for spatially varying quantities in cryobiology.

Foundations of modeling in cryobiology-II: Heat and mass transport in bulk and at cell membrane and ice-liquid interfaces.

Modeling coupled heat and mass transport in biological systems is critical to the understanding of cryobiology. In Part I of this series we derived the transport equation and presented a general therm...

Numerical solution of inward solidification of a dilute ternary solution towards a semi-permeable spherical cell.

Modeling a cell's response to encroaching ice has informed the development of cryopreservation protocols for four decades. It has been well documented that knowledge of the cellular state as a functio...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).

The study of biological materials or systems subjected to temperatures below their normal range.

Organizations established by endowments with provision for future maintenance.

The pressure required to prevent the passage of solvent through a semipermeable membrane that separates a pure solvent from a solution of the solvent and solute or that separates different concentrations of a solution. It is proportional to the osmolality of the solution.
