Cell & Tissue Culture
Cryogenically preserved cells, such as the HeLa cell line derived from the cervical carcinoma of Henrietta Lacks, have been transported to laboratories all over the world and had an outstanding impact on scientific development.
In vitro culture is a cornerstone of numerous disciplines with a diversity of applications including toxicity and drug screening, cell signalling and pathway study, developmental biology and tissue regeneration with stem cells. Successful cultivation is dependent on providing a suitable environment for the cell type in question and can vary considerably between cells from different tissue origins, whilst some cultures are adherent others cells grow as suspension cultures.
The UniWells™ Horizontal Co-Culture Plate is a cell culture plate system designed for simultaneous co-culture of cell populations and allows for effective investigation of processes such as transport, migration and invasion.
