    Abstract

    DATE: July 15, 2020

    TIME: 8:00am PT

     

    Everyone working with cultured cells experiences contamination at some point. Contamination by microorganisms, other mammalian cells, and volatile organic chemicals is a recurring problem in basic and applied research as well as in production of therapeutic and other biologic products. Statistics show that contamination is much more prevalent than most researchers acknowledge. Even a single contamination incident can cost significant time and money and threaten the reputation of an investigator, laboratory or product. 

     

    This presentation will:

    • Review the different types of cell culture contamination and their effects on cells.

    • Explore the ways in which contamination occurs and offer advice for preventing contamination occurrences, including some steps that few labs take on a routine basis.

    • Compare methods for contamination control in the CO2 incubator--the central equipment for cell growth--and differentiate options with efficacy data.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn about different types of contamination
    • How-to tips you can implement on a routine basis
    • Explore methods for contamination control in your CO2 incubator
