This section provides detailed information on selected subjects of cell culture technology. It covers topical and practical issues, e.g. handling and storage of cell cultures, bacterial and viral contaminations, misidentified cell lines etc., which are intended for interested parties. However, as cell cultures are a matter of living material, they may behave differently upon treatment during cell culture. Thus, the cells should be handled by experienced personnel and standard or cell line specific publications should be consulted for the generation of reproducible results, for a constant production of bioactive reagents, for the reliable use in bio assays, or for optimal conditions in genetic modifications.
