Cellpreservation media

I would like to get some help on finding possible ways to fix cells to preserve. Cells are from tissue culture and I would like to store in solutions.

Store in solution?

Store in solution?

Are you asking what the options are for substances to add to cells before freezing?

Please pardon me! I guess

Please pardon me! I guess the question was not clear enough. I am collecting tissue culture cells and until I use them (could take 1 days to couple of weeks) and I don't want to freeze them but want to store in some fixative solutions for molecular works. I would like to get some help on this topic.

Thank you.

What molecular work are you

What molecular work are you going to use the cells for? If it is for RNA extraction/expression pattern, Ambion has an excellent rgt that stabilizes samples/RNA for several hours to days (depending on storage conditions) until ready for processing.
