Hi, colleagues!

I can see no problem in maintaining temperatures higher than that of LN2.
Whether you use an on-site refrigerator or an external source of LN2 it will
ALWAYS be easier to maintain -130 than -196!

Neither do I see any reason why you shouldn't cool a -130 vitrified patient
down to -196 as slowly as needed to avoid any cracking.

Merry Eternity to all,
