For cryopreservation of human erythrocytes the cooling speed must be at least 200 K/min. To increase heat transfer from the freezing containment to the liquid nitrogen, the nitrogen was subcooled. The normally used liquid-tight freezing container was replaced by a metal braid permeable to liquids. The minimal cooling rate could thus be reached or even exceeded.
