Cell Culture Basics from GIBCO®

Category: 

Cell culture refers to the removal of cells from an animal or plant and their subsequent growth in a favorable artificial environment. The cells may be removed from the tissue directly and disaggregated by enzymatic or mechanical means before cultivation, or they may be derived from a cell line or cell strain that has already been established. In this video, we present the basic equipment used in cell culture and proper way to set-up a laboratory.

The entire Cell Culture Basics training course is available online at http://www.invitrogen.com/cellculturebasics. The handbook and videos are intended as an introductory cell culture training course, covering topics such as getting familiar with the requirements of a laboratory dedicated to cell culture experiments, laboratory safety, aseptic technique, and microbial contamination of cell cultures, as well as providing basic methods for passaging, freezing, and thawing cultured cells.
