An Introduction to Tissue Culture and its Use in the Study of Nerve and Muscle

  • Alan L. Harvey


Tissue culture is a means of keeping animal cells alive for more than a few hours after their removal from the animal. Different types of tissue culture can be classified according to the degree of disruption of the tissue before it is placed in culture. There are four broad classes: organ culture, explant culture, cell culture and continuous cell line culture.
