			CELL CULTURE AND HYBRIDOMAS: 
	QUALITY CONTROL AND CRYOPRESERVATION TECHNIQUES
			September 8-10, 1997, Rockville, MD


This is a three-day fundamental course in which you will learn freezing
and quality control procedures for mammalian cell cultures and hybridomas.

Lecture topics include the theory of cryopreservation, an overview of cell
banking principles and practices, detection methods for microbial,
mycoplasmal and viral contaminants, chromosome analysis, isoenzyme and
gene probe analyses for cell line identification, plus qualitative and
quantitative testing for antibody production.

Laboratory techniques taught include ATCC methods for cell freezing,
isoenzymology for species determination, cytogenetics, microbial
contaminant testing including direct and indirect methods for mycoplasma
detection. Step-by-step instructions will be given in the laboratory, and
participants will acquire direct working knowledge of the methodologies
employed.

A copy of the "ATCC Quality Control Methods for Cell Lines" and the "ATCC
Cell Lines and Hybridomas Reference Guide" will be included with the
course manual.
