Berlin-based company starts human cryopreservation

A Berlin-based company is exploring the potential of human cryopreservation with the ambitious goal of reversing death. Tomorrow Biostasis has already preserved the remains of about 10 individuals in a lab and has a waiting list of hundreds more.

The company’s cryopreservation process involves cooling the body to -196° Celsius and placing it in an insulated tank with liquid nitrogen. The company’s co-founder, Emil Kendziorra, says that the goal is to preserve the body in a state of stasis until future medical advances can reverse the person’s original cause of death.

Kendziorra says that the company’s typical clients are 36 years old on average and tend to work in tech. A few of them just want their brain preserved, thinking their future selves may prefer a new 3D-printed body or maybe not even a body at all.

However, there are still many challenges to overcome before human cryopreservation can become a reality. One challenge is that it is not yet known how to revive a dead cryopreserved human. While it is possible to freeze the brain to preserve cells and tissues, bringing a previously dead brain back to life with regular function and memories remains an area of ongoing research and exploration.

Another challenge is the cost of cryopreservation. Tomorrow Biostasis charges €120,000 for whole-body cryopreservation and €80,000 for brain cryopreservation. This is a significant investment, and it is not clear how many people will be willing to pay it.

Despite the challenges, Tomorrow Biostasis is optimistic about the future of human cryopreservation. The company believes that advances in medical technology will eventually make it possible to revive cryopreserved humans and that this will provide a new lease on life for those who are terminally ill or who have suffered a fatal accident.

Only time will tell if Tomorrow Biostasis is right. But one thing is certain, the company is at the forefront of a new frontier in medicine, and its work has the potential to revolutionize how we think about death.

“We believe that human cryopreservation is the only way to give people a chance at immortality,” said Emil Kendziorra, cofounder of Tomorrow Biostasis. “We are committed to making this technology available to everyone, regardless of their financial situation.”

The public reaction to Tomorrow Biostasis has been mixed. Some people are excited about the potential of human cryopreservation, while others are skeptical.
