Organ Preservation Solutions, Corneal Storage
Definition : Solutions designed to maintain temporary viability (usually from 7 to 14 days) of donated corneas outside the human body until implant. Corneal preservation solutions usually contain sterilized water and other substances (e.g., polyoxyethylene/polyoxypropylene copolymers, chondroitin sulfate, insulin, cell nutrients, antibiotics, buffers and other preservatives) to maintain the life of the keratocytes in the cornea until it is needed for implant. They are used by eye tissue banks.
