A modified purification procedure is described for effectively eliminating dead cells after hepatocyte cryopreservation. Isolated hepatocytes from six pig tissue samples were cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen for 2 weeks. After thawing, we developed a pre-incubation step prior to gradient centrifugation. The hepatocytes were subsequent cultured in suspension overnight (12-16 h), and then dead cells were eliminated by Ficoll 400 purification. The results showed that a high viability (mean of 96%) of cells was obtained, with a low viable cell loss in number (2-5%), by using this modified method.
