Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

This course will cover various aspects of using eukaryotic cell culture as an assay system. The examples illustrated of the types of assays of a sample in a cell based assay will include the effect on proliferation, differentiated function and toxicity.

Cell based assays are being used by the pharmaceutical industry for high throughput screening of potential drug candidates. In vitro assays with eukaryotic cells are being used by the medical device industry for lot release testing of their products. Cell based assays have the advantage over animal based assays in that the former are lower cost and require less time to complete. With these advantages, cell based assays are appropriate as the first level of testing before testing in animals.

In addition, the opinion exists that there needs to be a reduction in animal biomedical testing and in vitro cell based assay systems are one way to achieve this. Attendees will leave the course understanding how eukaryotic cells are used as an assay system. At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will have the knowledge of the applicability, development and validation of cell based assay systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Description of how cell cultures are used for in vitro assays.
  • Examples of cell based assay systems.
  • Advantages of cell based assays.
