	CELL CULTURE AND HYBRIDOMAS: QUALITY CONTROL AND
		CRYOPRESERVATION TECHNIQUES WORKSHOP

	American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), Rockville, Maryland				SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1996

		Registration info e-mail: workshops at atcc.org 
	On-line registration: http://www.atcc.org/workshops/workshop.html

	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 viralcontaminants, chromosome analysis, isoenzyme and gene probe analyses for 
cell lineidentification, 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.
