Best Practices in Cell Culture

Articles published in In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology-Animal In vitro-based cell culture techniques are now fundamental to research in cancer, cell physiology, gene therapy, and regenerative medicine. These and other disciplines are impacted by a breakdown in good cell culture practices [1]. Among the many concerns are the use of misidentified or cross contaminated cell lines, infection by adventitious agents, and altered growth/differentiation by poor medium or serum selection and/or improper cryopreservation techniques. All of these factors have led to the publication of an appreciable number of studies that are at best irreproducible and at worst completely useless...
