Physically-crosslinked chitosan cryogel was prepared by freeze-thawing of a chitosan-gluconic acid conjugate aqueous solution and sterilized by autoclaving. The autoclaved cryogel retained favorable biological properties of the pre-autoclaved cryogel. The photograph shows hematoxylin and eosin -stained cross-sections of the cryogel (red) implanted into mice and the surrounding tissues.
