Animal cell culture

Animal cell culture

(Science: cell culture) Mammalian cells are fragile and harder to grow than other cell types, but their large-scale culturing is an economic boom because it allows for the production of proteins that are otherwise difficult or expensive or unethical to extract from living organisms.

The cells are immobilised on a substrate and then perfused with culture medium, The cells are in a free suspension which is very gently mixed and aerated.
