Recent studies have shown that at least 20% of the animal cell cultures currently in use in the US are contaminated by either microorganisms or other cell lines! This three part live, on-line seminar series will review the scope of this major problem and examine some of its causes and techniques for avoiding it. It will also explore some key, easy to employ strategies for preventing these losses by careful culture management.
This webinar will discuss good asceptic technique: developing a practical approach to asceptic technique; reducing day-to-day contamination problems in the lab; helpful hings for avoiding contamination.
