	On-line registration:

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