Advanced and innovative cell culture tools can help you achieve excellence at every stage of your cell culture process. Proper surface of culture ware is criteria to ensure optimal growth condition. During the session we will present the most suitable cell culture surface for cell attachment and novel temperature responsive surface, ‘Upcell’. Upcell can completely abolish the use of cell damaging proteolytic enzymes such as trypsin. Moreover, when cells are cultured beyond over-confluency, the cells can be collected in a form of thin-film, so-called as "cell-sheet" and it also allows the creation of 3D tissue construct when we stack the cell –sheet. Secondly, we will introduce innovative cell culture flask which has fully closed system but O2 and CO2 are efficiently diffused through the thin film so it can minimize the contamination when we need to transport the cell.
