Cell Culture Basics: Initiate, Expand, Authenticate, and Cryopreserve Your Cells with Confidence Webinar

September 08, 2022, at 12:00 PM ET

Abstract

The successful cultivation of cells is critical for performing cell-based assays, yet even the most experienced scientists can encounter issues with their cultures. In this webinar, we will provide some best practices for cell culture, including tips and techniques for initiation, expansion, authentication, and cryopreservation. After the presentation, we invite you to join in on the discussion as a panel of ATCC cell culture experts answer your questions.

Key Points

  • Using misidentified or cross-contaminated cell lines in experiments can invalidate research efforts; therefore, authenticating cell lines should be part of your cell culture work flow.
  • When culturing specialty cells, such as stem cells or primary cells, certain considerations regarding the choice of media and reagents must be taken.
  • Cryopreserving cells under optimal conditions is critical for maintaining cell viability.
