Summary

Cell culture laboratories in general require facilities with very high standards of hygiene and air quality. Maintaining a Grade-A environment (ISO 4 or above) in these laboratories is usually necessary with respect to particle counts and airborne microbial colony forming units. This minimizes the risk of contamination and permits cell culture for prolonged periods of time.
