For storage, isolated hepatocytes can be resuspended in ViaSpan or cryopreserved using dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Viability is usually assessed based on the ability of cells to exclude trypan blue. Unfortunately, this measure is a poor guide to hepatocyte function and engraftment potential. In vitro characteristics of isolated hepatocytes have not been shown to correlate with engraftment, and the ability of the cells to adhere to tissue culture plates 24 h after seeding is a better in vitro assay of engraftment potential [12].
