Is it safe to culture animal tissues?

Posted December 14, 2020


Yes it is safe to culture animal tissue, however when handling biomaterials it is important to follow the necessary safety and handling considerations. Before you begin, first makes sure that the nature of your experiment adheres to the medical-ethical and animal-experiment legislation and guidelines. Then when working with cell culture use aseptic technique and the proper laboratory equipment (e.g. laminal flow hoods) to prevent contamination.
