During this three-day workshop, you will learn freezing and quality control procedures for
mammalian cell cultures and hybridomas. Lecture topics include the theory of
cryopreservation, an overview of cell banking principles and practices, detection
methods for microbial, mycoplasmal and viral contaminants, chromosome analysis,
isoenzyme and DNA hypervariable probe analyses for cell line identification, plus
qualitative and quantitative testing for antibody production.
Laboratory techniques taught include ATCC methods for cell freezing, isoenzymology
for species determination, cytogenetics, microbial contaminant testing, including direct
and indirect methods for mycoplasma detection. Step-by-step instructions will be given
in the laboratory. Participants will acquire a direct working knowledge of the
A copy of the "ATCC Quality Control Methods for Cell Lines" will be included with the
