Studies have shown that at least 20% of the animal cultures in existence today are contaminated. Cell line contamination can result in decreased productivity, loss of critical study tools, impact data quality and reduce bioprocessing capacity.
In hopes of helping to reduce this common problem, this seminar will focus on:

  • Understanding the nature of contamination and its consequences
  • Understanding the major sources and causes of cell culture contamination
  • Discussing aseptic technique and its use in reducing day-to-day contamination
  • Simple methods to monitor for
