What are the similarities between primary cell culture and cell line?

Posted November 6, 2023


They are both types of cell cultures, although they have differing features. Both have cells which can be extracted from plant or animal tissue and grown in a lab-controlled setting. Another similarity is that both require the proper medium and nutrients for cellular growth. Additionally, they both are involved in research such as in studying cell behavior.
