About this book

This volume provides complete and thorough coverage of the classical and state-of-the-art methods used in cell culture. It also includes basic principles used in the selection of cells for specific scientific study, as well as analytical and procedural techniques.

...investigators with different levels of expertise will find smething of interest in many of the topics covered.. -ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY This is a useful and well written book... This volume is more complete than many others since it features a much broader coverage of important information and is more current than most others. It would be a very useful reference in any life science library or a laboratory that is using or plans to use animal cell culture. -DOODY'S
