Natural dehydration regimes as prerequisite for the successful induction of anhydrobiosis
in the nematode Rotylenchulus reniformis.
Revival from anhydrobiosis has been studied in detail in Philodina roseola, a bdelloid very common worldwide (Jacobs, 1909).
How rotifers prevent lethal damage during anhydrobiosis has not yet been fully resolved.
In order to purge the anabiotic process of its spontaneous-generation taint, he says, scientists in this century renamed it cryptobiosis, meaning return to life, or anhydrobiosis
, meaning life without water.
Typical processes used are lyophilization and anhydrobiosis
. (10) There are also proprietary formats that encapsulate the PCR components in a soluble bead.

Crowe (1974) discusses several types of latent states among tardi grades including anhydrobiosis
, the cryptobiotic state induced by desiccation, the state that most limno-terrestrial tardigrades must survive.
