What is subculture?

Posted November 6, 2023


Subculture refers to the removal of the medium and the transferring of cells grown from a prior culture into a new growth medium. This is done to allow the cell line or cell strain to continue growing and proliferating. Subculture is also referred to as serial passaging.
