Webinar

Contamination is the ever present threat to good science and your hard work. This webinar provides important points that will help you work with your biological safety cabinet more effectively to prevent contamination in your cell culture lab.

Application note

Everyone using a cell culture incubator needs to understand a few important points in order to keep any incubator working its very best. The information presented here will help you to avoid common mistakes that can result in project delays.


Isolation of mitochondria using the Thermo Scientific Sorvall LYNX 6000 Superspeed Centrifuge

This procedure describes the isolation of highly pure mitochondria from large volume cultures of Saccharomyces cerevisiae using the Thermo Scientific Sorvall LYNX 6000 superspeed centrifuge. In addition, this procedure can be readily adapted to other cell types, including bacteria, insects, or mammalian cells.

Which incubation parameters are most important for proper cell growth and expression?

All parameters are important. Proper temperature, gas tension (CO2/O2/N2) and humidity work together to provide optimum growth. Speedy recovery to your set parameters is a critical consideration any time you want to mimic an in vivo state.
