Cell line identity- Preventing cell misidentification in your daily lab routine

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.

Secure You Next Great Discovery

Your samples are some of the most valuable assets in the laboratory. After spending countless hours on extraction and preparation, your conclusions could be invalid due to lack of traceability or loss of sample integrity associated with poor storage conditions.

To complete your research, you need to be able to trust your results. So why do so many rely on an inadequate sample management system that can lead to unreliable findings?

Everyday Cell Culture Practice - Improve reproducibility of your cell culture

Eukaryotic cell cultures respond to the most subtle influence. Apart from the risk of contamination, minimal changes in cultivation parameters can affect the viability, growth and metabolism of the cells. In this educative webinar we will discuss topics like Mycoplasma test methods, effects of passage numbers, and the usage of FBS. Join us to learn about the measures you can take to improve the reproducibility of your experiments by incorporating Good Cell Culture Practice into your daily routine.

Cells in Motion - How to optimize your shake flask and bioreactor cultures

Shakers and bioreactors are established versatile systems for cultivating microorganism, plant, and animal cells in suspension. Both methods aim at increasing the oxygen and nutrient supply in the medium to stimulate culture growth, but offer very different solutions in technique, volumes/throughput, control possibilities, and thus applications.

In this educational webinar, we will look at the biophysical background of both cultivation techniques, pros and cons, and areas of application. You will also learn how to optimize your process in shake flasks and bioreactors via proper choice of vessel type, vessel material, instrument configuration, and parameter settings. Additionally, we will introduce the use of feeding techniques bioreactors and have a glance on shakers too.

Target groups:

  • Experienced scientists looking for tips and tricks to improve their processes
  • Scientists new to cultivation of cells in suspension in shakers and/or bioreactors

Learning Objectives:

  • Review: Why shake or stir cells and an outline of system specific differences
  • Learn how to identify the right cultivation method, vessel type, vessel material, and instrument configuration for your specific needs
  • Learn how to define and optimize important parameters to improve culture results – incl. Tips & Tricks
  • Learn about feeding possibilities in shake flasks & bioreactors and their impact on your culture
