A method for growing cells in the laboratory.
The process of growing and maintaining cells and cell lines; a form of tissue culture.
living cells that are grown in a dish or flask and maintained under artificial conditions
General term referring to the maintenance of cell strains or lines in the laboratory.
a liquid medium with cells floating in it
The initial source of biological material for a given prokaryotic protein sample. Also used generically by the Data Management System (DMS) to refer to a Biomass Source. A cell culture belongs to a particular campaign, but may be associated with several experiments.
Cell taken from living organism and grown (cultured) under controlled, sterile conditions. Back to glossary index
Cells that are grown up and stored outside of living organisms.
Growth of cells under laboratory conditions.
Cells growing in vitro (â€œin glassâ€ or in the laboratory) on an artificial medium such as in a test tube. Scientists use these cells for their research.
A diagnostic test for many kinds of viruses. In a cell culture for HSV, a swab of the patient's herpes lesion is placed in a dish containing normal skin cells to see if HSV will grow.
Growth of cells in vitro on an artificial medium for experimental research.
cells taken from a living organism and grown under controlled conditions ("in culture"). Also refers to the methods used to maintain cell lines.
The act or process of growing living material (cells) in prepared nutrient media.
A cell culture is the maintenance or growth of cells after removal from the body, commonly on a glass surface immersed in nutrient fluid.
A nutrient-enriched solution that supports the growth of cell lines.
Producing cells for experimentation.
See tissue culture.
all the techniques used to grow cells in an artificial medium under sterile conditions.
Term used to denote the maintenance or cultivation of cells in vitro including the culture of single cells. In cell cultures, the cells are no longer organized into tissues.
Cells grown in a test tube or other laboratory device for experimental purposes.
The growth of cells in a vessel such as a flask, spinner bottle, or bioreactor ( in vitro). It is used to study the effect of environmental factors on a population of cells and also to produce large quantities of proteins expressed by the cells. Microfiltration is used to sterilize the media and growth enhancers added to media. If human, animal or plant cells are being grown it is often called tissue culture.
Cell culture is the process by which either prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells are grown under controlled conditions. In practice the term "cell culture" has come to refer to the culturing of cells derived from multicellular eukaryotes, especially animal cells. The historical development and methods of cell culture are closely interrelated to those of tissue culture and organ culture.
