Effect of HES with different molecular weight distributions on MSCs cryopreservation. Viability of MSCs after cryopreservation with 10% HES of different molecular weight distributions (109–609) in combination with DMEM or FCS, measured 3 days after thawing (A) and by methylene blue staining after osteogenic differentiation for 14 days (B). Alkaline phosphatase activity of cryopreserved MSCs after osteogenic differentiation for 14 days (C).
