White Paper: Cell Cultivation without Contamination - Hot air sterilization and other means of contamination control in CO₂ incubators
No other problem in cell culturing is as universal as microbial contamination. In order to avoid it, good sterile techniques and thorough culture handling are essential. Beyond that, the CO₂ incubator plays a key role because it provides optimal growth conditions not only for cell cultures but also for various unwanted microbes.
