Cell culture is an essential tool in cellular and molecular biology research. It refers to several techniques and resources in which animal or plant cells are extracted from an organism and grown under controlled conditions in an artificial environment. That allows scientists to study or manipulate cells for research, diagnose infections, test the effectiveness of new drugs, or explore the normal physiology and biochemistry of the cells.

What is Cell Culture?
The Purpose and Application of Cell Culture
The molecular and cellular biology fields depend on cell culture to provide specific cell types for researchers to study. For example, cell culture technology allows scientists to study how drugs and toxic compounds can affect cells. Cell culture in biotechnology is critical to developing and manufacturing large-scale biological compounds, including vaccines and therapeutic proteins.
Cellular agriculture is another industry that relies on cell culture. Scientists can develop new products and techniques for producing current agricultural products through cell culture technology.
Advantages of Cell Culture
One of the most important benefits of cell culture techniques allows researchers to obtain consistent and reproducible results. Cells in a physicochemical environment can be accurately controlled to eliminate interference from genetic or environmental variables.
