    In-Person Training (Catalog #00262)

    This course provides a comprehensive overview of the mouse intestinal organoid culture workflow. Learn to establish cultures from mouse small intestine and colon and how to maintain them in IntestiCult™ Organoid Growth Medium (Mouse). Participants will also gain experience with performing downstream assays.
