Antibiotics in Cell Culture – What types are available and when and how to utilize them.
Antibiotics are often chemicals and sometimes polypeptides that affect the ability of bacteria to grow. Antibiotics come in two categories, bacteriostatic and bactericidal. Bacteriostatic antibiotics don’t kill but inhibit some vital cellular process such as cell-wall synthesis or protein expression. If the baceriostatic antibiotic is removed bacterial growth can resume. Bactericidal antibiotics kill bacterial cells and therefore they are useful at preventing contaminations and eliminating them. There are many antibiotics available and it is important to know when and how to use them. This session is a good opportunity to ask your questions and get answers.
