Setting Good Cell Culture Practice (GCCP) and common biosafety standards for cell culture work is of critical importance for quality and reproducibility of research, bio-assay protocol development, and biological safety.

To stay current with the latest tools, techniques, and applications for cell culture practices, BioLab, in partnership with the OICR Biosafety Committee (OBC), is inviting scientists from Corning Life Sciences to present a series of educational seminars on a variety of topics associated with cell culture: from maintaining healthy cells and overcoming challenges associated with contamination, to developing microplate-based assays, 3D cell cultures and organoids, as well as advanced cell-based screening technologies.

The first seminar on “Basic Cell Culture Workflow and Best Practice for Reducing Cross-Contamination”, is on Wednesday, February 26, from 3 - 4 p.m., BR 6-11/12, OICR

In this free educational event you will learn how to recognize and identify different types of contaminants in cultivated cells. We will discuss how to apply aseptic techniques and preventive hygiene and give practical tips for preventing contamination by incorporating standard procedures into your daily culture practice.
