Cell Culture Lab

The Cell Culture facilities provide various resources for the isolation and culture of animal and human cells. Previous studies have successfully isolated and cultured cells from various musculoskeletal tissues, including bone marrow, periosteum, adipose tissue, tendon and cartilage. The cultured cells are used for upstream research work (molecular and genetic studies) or downstream studies such as in-vivo studies using animals and clinical trials.

The Cell Culture Lab is equipped with:

  • Biological Safety Cabinet (Type II)
  • Incubator for mammalian cell culture
  • Microscope for viewing cell cultures
  • Centrifuge (refridgerated)
  • Freezers (-20 deg C and - 80 deg C)
  • Fume Cupboard
  • Cryogenic tank
  • Autoclave
