Desiccated state biostabilization aims at stopping molecular motions and biochemical processes to halt degradation and to preserve functionality. Preservation by desiccation typically involves drying the biological material or the organism in a preservation solution, which typically contains non-reducing sugars (trehalose, sucrose, etc.) and salts [1]. Typically, preservation solutions (containing the biological material to be preserved) in the form of sessile droplets are deposited and dried on a surface in a controlled environment.
