The first atlas in many years giving researchers a good visual reference of the status of their cell lines. Given the increasing importance of well defined cellular models in particular in biomedical research this is a sorely needed resource for everyone performing cell culture.
I. Comprehensive introduction including the history of cell banking.
II. Routine procedures including thawing, freezing, passaging, and routine controls when doing cell banking
III. Procedures regarding documentation and shipping of cell lines
IV. Directory of cell lines including images and text description (sorted alphabetically)
V. Appendix: culture media and conditions for cell lines
VI. Glossary of Cell lines (name and origin)
Toni Lindl is em. Prof. of the Univ. of Appl. Sciences in Weihenstephan and CEO of the Inst. Appl. Cell Cult. Ltd. Balanstr. 6, D-Munich. After studies of biochemistry and cell biology he obtained his PhD in neurochemistry. After post doc fellowships at the Univ. of Constance and Bonn Germany he founded in 1981 the Inst. of Appl. Cell Culture Ltd. and got in 1990 a professorship at the Univ. of Appl. Sciences in Weihenstephan, Germany. He is author of the first german textbook in cell and tissue culture (6th ed. Spektrum Verlag Heidelberg 2008) and wrote more than 70 articles in many famous journals, among those are Nature, BBA, ALTEX etc. He is member of many cell biology societies and is engaged in the development of alternatives to animal testing (3 R according to Rusel and Burch).. . Rosemarie Steubing is head of the cell culture company CLS - Cell Lines Service since 2004. After her study of chemistry and biochemistry at the Ruprecht-Karls-University in Heidelberg, Germany, she obtained her Ph.D. in applying laser microdissection in immunological experiments. Follwing two years as post-doctoral fellow at the Beckman Laser Institute, University of California, Irvine, USA, she has been working in molecular physiology and cellular immunology. In the field of laser micromanipulation of single cells and of single skeletal muscle fibers, she has authored a couple of scientific publications and book chapters.
