Cell Cultures

Cell culture is the process by which cells are grown under controlled conditions, generally outside their natural environment. After the cells of interest have been isolated from living tissue, they can subsequently be maintained under carefully controlled conditions.

In cell culture systems it is aimed that the cells that are in a three-dimensional environment in tissues to be cultured and examined by providing appropriate circumstances under in vitro conditions.

Cell Cultures

Primary Cells

Primary cells are cells taken directly from living tissue (e.g. biopsy material) and established for growth in vitro. ... Primary cells from different species may be used, allowing you to highlight potential differences between humans and preclinical test species

Transformed Cells

Transformed cells occur when cells take in foreign DNA and express the genes encoded on that DNA, giving the cell new characteristics. Learn the definition and characteristics of transformed cells, explore how they work, and discover how to force cell transformation via techniques like electroporation and gene guns.

Self-Renewing Cells

Self-renewal is the process by which stem cells divide to make more stem cells, perpetuating the stem cell pool throughout life. Self-renewal is a division with maintenance of the undifferentiated state. This requires cell cycle control and often maintenance of multipotency or pluripotency, depending on the stem cell.

Applications of
NANO Cell Culture

Cell culture is one of the major tools used in cellular and molecular biology, providing excellent model systems for studying the normal physiology and biochemistry of cells (e.g., metabolic studies, aging), the effects of drugs and toxic compounds on the cells, and mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. It is also used in drug screening and development, and large scale manufacturing of biological compounds (e.g., vaccines, therapeutic proteins). The major advantage of using cell culture for any of the these applications is the consistency and reproducibility of results that can be obtained from using a batch of clonal cells.
