    This question has been one of my main research interests over the last 15 years. I have tried various holding solutions for the grafts to see which is best and think we have finally found the answer. The holding solution we have developed uses a tissue transplant media supplemented with a patented energy nutrient for grafts. In laboratory testing, this solution has kept cells from the hair follicle viable for up to 2 weeks at cold temperatures. When tested in an actual patient, we were able to achieve near complete survival of grafts kept out of body for 5 days. I reported this at our annual scientific meeting in Amsterdam in July, 2009 and will publish this study in a medical journal next year. We have used this solution in all our hair transplant cases for the last year and think it represents a major advance for the field.
