Step 1: Seeding

Cell seeding, the first cell culture step, is key to achieving reproducible results. One challenge, though, is maintaining similar cell numbers throughout your experiments. To get started, browse products for cell seeding, including centrifuge tubes, pipets, tips, and more. You can also explore helpful cell culture resources to inform your purchase.

Step 2: Cell Expansion

Your next step, cell expansion, is necessary for cell growth and will take place in a vessel containing a culture medium. There are multiple options available based on the cell line being studied. To prepare, shop products for cell expansion, including media, sera, and flasks for your research. For more information on these items, download the resources below.

Step 3: Harvesting

Collecting and isolating cells may involve centrifugation, depth filtration, and cell detachment. Before proceeding, adherent cells should be detached from the surface of the cell culture flask or dish. Choose to harvest your cells with products from our portfolio. Find cell scrapers, lifters, and reagents, as well as resources to support your workflow.
