Special quality requirements apply to the use of oxygen (O
2) and nitrogen (N
2) in clinical applications and in the pharmaceutical industry.
Oxygen is often necessary for patient care during medical treatments.
Medical oxygen must therefore always be available in hospitals. Nitrogen is used in cryosurgery.
For these applications, CRYOTEC supplies plants that produce medical oxygen that meets the highest standards of patient care.
Liquid nitrogen (N
2) is used for the cryo-preservation of blood cells, egg cells, sperm cells and other biological materials.
