Human erythrocytes were frozen at -20, -40, -80, and -196°C in the presence of glycerol as protecting agent. The biochemical parameters of erythrocytes were studied immediately after thawing and washing. K+ and ATP content, membrane phospholipids and proteins, as well as the morphological and osmotic properties, were determined.
