Cells undergo several steps in culture from seeding to assay. However, researchers commonly face low cell viability, change in cell morphology, improper cell characterization during these steps. In addition, maintaining healthy growing cell cultures is difficult by the ever-present risk of their loss or change. These problems can be reduced by using cryogenic preservation to stop biological time in cell culture. This webinar will introduce general concepts of cryogenic storage of animal cell cultures.
In this webinar, Kyung-A Song will review:
•An introduction to cryogenic storage
•Practical aspects of cell freezing
•Troubleshooting for cryogenic storage
Dr. Kyung-A Song graduated from Sungkyunkwan University with a Ph.D. in molecular biology and cancer immunology. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship in pharmaceutical research and drug discovery at Virginia Commonwealth University. She has extensive experience in a variety of cell culture techniques including isolation and culture of primary patient cells. She has worked with xenograft models and many cancer cell lines, and she has expertise in in vitro cell based functional assays and in vivo experiments. She is currently a Scientific Support Specialist for Corning Life Sciences where she answers customer inquiries about all products in the extensive Corning Life Sciences product portfolio.
