Actual use for DMSO in medical research[edit]

Not sure if you all want to have some legitimate uses of DMSO on there, or just the info about its woo. It is used to supplement cell growth media when cryopreserving cell lines in research, which is at least tangentially related to medicine. The DMSO disrupts the crystal structure of the ice a bit, which helps keep cells from bursting during freeze/thaw. Mcnamara12 (talk) 16:34, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Not really necessary or we'll be here all day. It's a bitch of a solvent to work with, that's for sure. Scarlet A.pngpostate 17:50, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
