Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to work independently in a cell culture lab. They have mastered aseptic techniques as well as basic cell culture techniques such as cell passaging, cryopreservation and cell counting.

Subject of course

This course provides an introduction to mammalian cell culture, covering topics such as laboratory setup, aseptic techniques and safety aspects. Students will perform the following techniques on both adherent and suspension cell lines: resuspension of mammalian cells from cold storage, sterile media preparation, passaging and feeding of cells, cryopreservation of cells, microscopic evaluation of confluence and morphology, and cell counting. Further, students will work with 3D spheroid cultures and perform metabolic activity assays.

Teaching methods

The contents of the laboratory course are conveyed by a working instruction and the exercises described therein. An instructor will show and supervise small groups of students.
