This eagerly awaited edition reviews the increasing diversity of the applications of cell culture and the proliferation of specialized techniques, and provides an introduction to new subtopics in mini-reviews. New features also include a new chapter on cell line authentication with a review of the major issues and appropriate protocols including DNA profiling and barcoding, as well as some new specialized protocols. Because of the continuing expansion of cell culture, and to keep the bulk of the book to a reasonable size, some specialized protocols are presented as supplementary material online.

R. IAN FRESHNEY, PHD, was an honorary Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Cancer Sciences at the University of Glasgow, UK. Dr Freshney, who died in 2019, was a world-renowned cancer biologist and a pioneer in cell culture techniques who made important contributions to new approaches for treating cancer patients. He taught cell culture courses at national and international level, and wrote and edited numerous books, including the first seven editions of Culture of Animal Cells.

The common conception of cytotoxicity is that the cell is killed by the cytotoxin and the assays employed tend to reflect this. There are, however, several distinct aspects of cytotoxicity, differing in cellular mechanisms, outcome, and, consequently, in the assay of their activity (Freshney, 1904). As requirements for in vitro assays become more demanding, driven by mechanistic studies, economics, and by the desire to reduce animal experimentation, there is a need to look more closely at specific cellular responses to toxins and employ an assay most suited to the type of response that is expected. Cytotoxins may have reversible or irreversible effects, and their effects may be immediate or delayed by up to several weeks. There are major differences between (1) physico-chemical damage, which may produce an instantaneous loss of viability, (2) an environmental or pharmaceutical cytotoxin which may have a slight but progressive effect on metabolism over a period of hours or longer, and (3) a loss of reproductive potential, e.g. as a result of irradiation, which may not be immediately apparent in a reduction in the viability of the cells.

Primary cell culture provides more biologically relevant data than that generated using cell lines. Concerns over the use of cell lines have resulted in a growing need for primary cells in a variety of applications from basic research to drug discovery. Often, primary cells are combined with newer technologies such as 3D cell culture given a recent surge within the research community to use better reagents to improve research.

But what are primary cells and how do they differ from cell lines How can you optimize your primary cell culture or create more physiologically relevant models using primary cells in 3D Find the answers to these questions and a comprehensive introduction into the topic here on our primary cell application page, packed with a broad collection of publications, webinars and other helpful resources.

Choose from a broad donor panel of airway and immune cells, culture media for primary cells, media and endotoxin testing products for vaccine and protein production, or use our NucleofectorTM Technology for virus creation.

For majority of the primary cell types, classical medium is not sufficient to support growth, or to retain the phenotypic markers. Our BulletKitTM Media is formulated with additional growth factors and hormones to optimally support consistent growth of primary cells while maintaining the tissue-specific characteristics. Our archive of publications and supporting white papers show suitability of our Primary Cell BulletKitTM Media for establishing complex co-culture models or developing advanced cell culture mod
