Media Kitchen and Tissue Culture

Our Media Kitchen and Tissue Culture team makes sure that our researchers have all the culture media – and other solutions – that they might need for their research. They also provide a mycoplasma testing service to the Unit to ensure that cells used by our researchers are not contaminated which could lead to inaccurate results. The team keeps the Unit in clean glassware and tissue culture consumables, helping to ensure quality control and continued progress in our research.
