    Are ethanol and antibiotics the best measures to prevent microbial contamination? Contamination is an everyday challenge in cell culture labs. Undetected or ignored contamination endanger the reliability and reproducibility of experimental data.  Get to know the most effective methods to detect mycoplasma and to fight against the common types of contaminants. In this educational webinar you will learn how to recognize and identify different types of contaminants in cultivated cells. We will discuss how to apply aseptic techniques and preventive hygiene and give practical tips for preventing contamination by incorporating standard procedures into your daily culture practice.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Types and sources of contamination (e.g. mycoplasma)
    • Aseptic techniques and preventive hygiene
    • Best practices to keep your lab contamination-free
    • Tips and Tricks for daily routine
