Primary cells - Free ebook - Register to download

Primary cells are collected directly from living tissues, and as such, more closely resemble in vivo cells from a genetic and physiological perspective. This feature makes primary cells a treasure trove of potential for investigating in vivo mechanisms, responses, and pathologies.

To use primary cells effectively, researchers have to contend with challenges not present when using immortalized cell lines.


How do I extract only the cells I want? How long do primary cells live? How can I avoid phenotype drift? Do my cells need a certain spatial alignment?


The Scientist and Lonza have teamed up to answer these and other questions. Safe your copy now for a comprehensive introduction into primary cells and their culture in 2D and 3D.
