Preservation of biological materials using fiber-forming techniques
A method of preserving a biological material includes the steps of providing at least one fiber-forming material, mixing at least one biological material, and optionally, one or more additives, to the at least one fiber-forming material to form a mixture, and forming at least one fiber from the mixture, wherein the resulting fiber has a diameter between 0.3 nanometers and about 25 microns. A biological material preserved by this method is also disclosed.
