Tips and Techniques for Enhancing Your Cell Culture

About this talk

Advances in the understanding of the behavior and function of biological systems are dependent on the study of cells and tissues. An essential tool in this research is the use of in vitro cell culture. Many variables contribute to providing a physiological environment for the cell in the laboratory, a few examples include cell source, isolation techniques, growth conditions such as matrix proteins and soluble factors, and cell age. Basic laboratory practices are sometimes overlooked as a source of discrepancy in data; however the application of fastidious and reproducible technique can reduce cell culture as a source of data variation. As specialized techniques have been developed to modulate cells and tissues in vitro, the importance of reproducible data has become paramount. In this presentation, we will identify and discuss basic principles of in vitro mammalian cell culture that influence the quality of experimental results.
