Preventing cell misidentification in your daily lab routine

Sponsored by: Eppendorf

Event Date & Time

Time: 7:00am PDT, 10:00am EDT, 4:00pm CEST



1951 the first human cell line HeLa entered cell culture labs worldwide. 70 years later, we know that at least 129 cell lines are contaminated with HeLa cells with dramatic implications on the validity of past cell culture related research. The fact that at least 509 cell lines are misidentified (ICLAC 2020) reveals a significant need for solid cell authentication that is increasingly required by scientific journals and auditing authorities.


In this webinar, we will discuss principles, methods, and share best practices to check cell identity. Join us to learn more about preventing cell misidentification by incorporating Good Cell Culture Practice into your daily routine and become a true cell culture expert.
