Aseptic Technique for Cell Culture Protocol This unit describes some of the ways that a laboratory can deal with the constant threat of microbial contamination in cell cultures. A protocol on aseptic technique is described first. This catch-all term universally appears in any set of instructions pertaining to procedures in which noncontaminating conditions must be maintained.
Basic Techniques for Mammalian Cell Tissue Culture Protocol Cultured mammalian cells are used extensively in cell biology studies; it requires a number of special skills in order to be able to preserve the structure, function, behavior and biology of the cells. This unit describes the basic skills required to maintain and preserve cell cultures: aseptic technique, medium characteristics, passaging, freezing and storage, recovering frozen stocks, and counting viable cells.
Sterilization and Filtration Protocol This unit on sterility in the tissue culture environment describes methods for sterilization of liquid and dry goods used for tissue culture and filtration of liquids to prevent contamination of cultures.
