The technology of cell, tissue and organ culture is of primary importance in the development of the biotechnology industry. Major advances in the biological sciences have been possible, at least partially, due to this technology. Principles and Practice of Animal Tissue Culture provides basic information on the technology of animal tissue culture and discusses several specialised techniques. The book is well supported by relevant graphs and photographs of equipment and cultured tissues.
The book is a comprehensive practical guide that emphasises ‘good laboratory practices’. Protocols, aseptic techniques, media preparation and data have been systematically presented to be of help primarily to students of biotechnology. The second edition of this book includes a new chapter on Primary Culture of Chick Embryo Fibroblasts written in the same lucid style.
