    Abstract

    DATE: June 29, 2017
    TIME: 7:00am PDT, 10:00am EDT, 4:00pm CEST

    The first human cell line HeLa established in 1951 has entered cell culture labs worldwide. It took 20 years until the first data on cross-contamination of human cell lines with HeLa cells were published. Up to now cross-contamination and misidentification of various cell lines is an increasing issue in cell culture labs and is associated with dramatic consequences for research. In this educative webinar, we will discuss causes and consequences of cell misidentification as well as different methods to check cell identity. Join us to learn more about preventing cell misidentification by incorporating Good Cell Culture Practice into your daily routine. 


    Learning Objectives:

    • Cell misidentification - What's that?
    • Causes and consequences of working with the wrong cell line
    • Choosing a cell authentication method
