Hydrogen Supplementation of Preservation Solution Improves Viability of Osteochondral Grafts

Figure 1

Hydrogen electrolyzer system used to introduce hydrogen into the preservation solution used for long-term cold storage of osteochondral tissue (OCT). The MiZ hydrogen electrolyzer system consists of an electrolyzer and a water bath connected to a refrigeration system. OCT in preservation solution within a hydrogen-permeable polystyrene tube is immersed in the cold-water bath for the introduction of hydrogen.
