Primary cell culture, over time, has become a major tool in academic research and the biopharmaceutical industry. Obtaining viable culture from a tissue sample and maintaining it for experimental, diagnostic or therapeutic purposes is very challenging.
Based on laboratory protocols and several years of practical experience with primary cell culture, this webinar will review methods for initiating primary cell culture and their advantages and limitations. In addition, the information will provide a foundation for individual researchers to experiment, explore, and establish protocols for their specific needs. Topics covered include: selection techniques for targeting specific cell types; suggestions for improving cell culture results; optimizing environmental conditions including medium, specialized surface.
