Cell Culture / Tissue Culture

Cell Culture / Tissue Culture Cell culture (sometimes referred to as “Tissue Culture”) is a vital part of life science research. Although the culture conditions for most cell lines are well established, it can take some optimization to get even the hardiest of cells to grow in your lab. Depending on your experimental needs you may have to play around with a number of different factors including: the appropriate media conditions (everything from the pH of the media to the serum type (and amount) you’re adding to the additional supplements that may (or may not be) needed), how long to wait before splitting the cells, how the cells are disassociated, etc.; the list for optimization points can be a long one. Fortunately there is a wide range of products available to help with this process. This includes: reagents, media, antibiotics and antimycotics, consumables, cell culture equipment, imaging systems, and, naturally, cell strains to get started. Be sure to look for good documentation for the products and check out what the troubleshooting support is like before purchasing. It can mean the difference between success and failure in a tricky culture system.
