Mycoplasma Testing Webinar Visual – Scientist looking at a cell culture plate questioning whether the cells may have a mycoplasma contamination.

Due to significant differences across species in liver pathways, in vitro models of the human liver are being increasingly utilized to screen for the potential efficacy, metabolism and/or toxicity of candidate compounds.

Cultures of primary human hepatocytes (PHHs) are widely considered to be the ‘gold standard’ for creating such models.  



Watch our archived webinar for a comprehensive overview of various models that one may apply to hepatocytes from the very basic to complex.
