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 

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.
