Contamination is an everyday challenge in cell culture labs. Undetected or ignored contamination and misidentification of cell lines endanger the reliability and reproducibility of experimental results.
In this educational seminar 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 (e.g. for introducing new cell lines to the lab and testing for mycoplasma) into your daily culture practice.
