Morphological aspects of the rat kidney preserved by cold storage. III. Ultrastructural aspects.Morphol Embryol (Bucur). 1983 Oct-Dec; 29(4):279-82.ME
The ultrastructural changes of the white Wistar rat kidney, preserved by cold storage into two preservation media (Sacks and Plasmagel) are reported. For each medium two groups of kidney were used; for one of them the medium was used without additives and for the other stabilizing additives were added. The results showed the favourable effects of additives on the maintenance of the cellular ultrastructure during preservation, and more important the damages incurred when Plasmagel was used.
