Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


Growth of four neuronal cell lines cultured in serum deprived medium utilizing traditional and perfusion culturing techniques were studied. Changing from serum supplemented medium to medium deprived of serum in traditional cultures, resulted in a cessation of cellular proliferation, as well as a decrease in cellular viability. In perfusion cells retained their viability and continued to proliferate until confluency.
