Top 5 Reasons That a Cell Assay Might Fail

  1. Biological Contamination

Contamination arising from careless handling of equipment or cell culture plates

Contamination can arise from chemical or biological means. To avoid contamination, the scientist should perform routine cleaning of all equipment, floors, and counters. When working with chemicals, it is good to make sure all lids are closed tightly before transporting a container. When working with cells, be sure to avoid cross contamination by working with one cell line at a time and changing pipette tips when appropriate.
