Cell culture is physical work
Culture flasks need to be transferred from the CO2 incubator to the biosafety cabinet, the medium needs to be changed, cells to be microscoped, and finally all flasks are transferred back to the CO2 incubator. This workflow includes a variety of ergonomic aspects to be considered. Keep in mind, you may spend hours for cell culture work. 4 hours at the bench count for your back. This means the workflows you have in your lab should form the starting point for the lab’s design, especially when setting up a new cell culture lab.
