Scrapers and T.C. (tissue culture) tools are laboratory instruments used to manipulate cells and tissues in culture. They are typically made of stainless steel or plastic and come in various sizes and shapes to meet different research needs.
Scrapers are used to detach adherent cells from tissue culture plates and to remove cell debris or excess media from the cell culture. They are commonly used in cell culture experiments, where the cells need to be harvested for further analysis, such as gene expression or protein analysis.
T.C. tools are specialized instruments used to manipulate cells and tissues in culture. They include forceps, scissors, spatulas, and needles, among others. These tools are essential for performing delicate procedures, such as transferring cells from one plate to another or isolating specific cell populations from a heterogeneous mixture.
