About this book
Now completely revised and updated from the original, much-acclaimed and bestselling first edition, Basic Cell Culture Protocols, Second Edition offers today's most comprehensive collection of easy-to-follow, cutting-edge protocols for the culture of a wide range of animal cells. Its authoritative contributors provide explicit, step-by-step instructions, along with extensive notes and tips that allow both experts and beginners to successfully achieve their desired results. Topics range from basic culture methodology to strategies for culturing previously uncultured cell types and hard-to-culture differentiated cells. Methods are also provided for the analysis of living cells by FACS, video microscopy, and confocal microscopy. Like the first edition, this book should be in every cell culture laboratory and be of use to all who use cell cultures in research.
