About the Book

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.

The book explains

  • The principles of animal tissue culture in simple terms;
  • How to set up a laboratory for tissue culture in India with the equipment and facilities available locally;
  • The procedures for various experiments and specialised techniques in a clear and lucid manner.
  • How to use a primary culture to help in the study of cell–cell interactions, maintenance of functional ability of cells and effect of external stimuli of cell functions (in the new chapter).
  • Various methods with the help of photographs and drawings of equipment in twenty colour plates.
