about

This book describes methods of culturing epithelial cells so as to mimic accurately their behaviour in vivo, and the resulting model systems can be used in a wide range of research areas: pharmaceutics, pharmacology, toxocology, and cell biology. The culture technique involves growing cells ona porous substrate, so that the cells can receive nutrients by diffusion from the underlying layer, as they would in vivo.
