Growing Pains: Cell Culture Challenges and Best Practices from thescientistllc on Vimeo.


Cell culture is an essential technique in modern biological laboratories and is employed in a wide range of research fields, including oncology, genetics, pharmacology, and bioproduction. Cell line contamination and misidentification is a significant threat facing cell culture, with the potential to invalidate years, if not decades, of data. Other common obstacles to research reproducibility involving culture systems include environmental variability, media inefficiency, and inappropriate scaling up or down of operations. Addressing these challenges will ensure the continued utility and reliability of cell culture across the biological sciences. Join The Scientist for an webinar on this topic of growing importance.

Topics to be covered:

  • Standardization of training, reagents, protocols, and analysis methods
  • Steps for improving reproducibility of culture setup and maintenance
