The basics about cell culture methods

The Department of Biological sciences of the University of Maryland (UMBC) has a protocol section very useful for cell culture first time users.

They explain extensively all the components of the work area and the equipment mainly used, from how the hood works to the microscope or the incubators. Also, types of cells that grow in culture, preservation and storage of cells, manteinance (media and growth requirements, harvesting,…) and safety considerations.

It is a very useful guide for those who begin using cell cultures and want to have an overview of everything that it involves. Here is the link to UMBC web site: http://userpages.umbc.edu/~jwolf/method5.htm
