Cells Need Protocol
There are many ways to use an incubator to grow cells. Many laboratories use the same incubator for many different protocols at the same time. In a perfect lab, the cells in each protocol would stay in their own incubator and nobody else would open the door after they go in. Due to logistics, though, most laboratory incubators look more like the one above. Learn more about the advantages of cell protocols in lab research below.
