Cell Culture Masterclass: A 10-Point Plan to Prevent Contamination
19 Nov 2018

All cell culture laboratories have experienced it: cell culture contamination and its inevitable loss of material. Contaminants may be biological or chemical, visible or invisible, destructive or seemingly benign, but in all cases, they adversely affect both the use of your cell cultures and the quality of your research.

Identification and, even better, prevention of contamination are crucial for ensuring high-quality research. This expert webinar will present an overview on how to prevent, recognize and tackle contamination by introducing good lab practices and targeted interventions. If you work with cell culture daily or are interested in setting up prevention strategies to minimize contamination, then join SelectScience and Franziska Wienholz, scientific support specialist of Corning Life Sciences, for this educational masterclass. Franziska will share a 10-point plan to prevent contamination and provide a comprehensive refresher on all aspects of cell culture.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand the basic rules of cell culture

  • Know how to properly manage cell lines to prevent cross-contamination

  • Be able to implement a 10-point plan to contamination prevention in your laboratory


Who should attend:
  • Scientists working with cell culture on a daily basis

  • Cell culture managers who are interested in setting up programs to prevent contamination and determine authentication of cells

  • Researchers that struggle with contamination issues
