How to Model the Human Airway at the Air-Liquid Interface: Introduction

In this series of videos, we will guide you through the protocols for expanding and differentiating human bronchial epithelial cells (HBECs) at the air-liquid interface (ALI). We will use the PneumaCult™ culture system to demonstrate ALI culture for this video. If you are using other culture media, some alterations to this protocol may be necessary.

01:02 Overview of phase 1- Expansion culture in a flask
01:15 Overview of phase 2 - Submerged expansion in porous inserts
01:37 Overview of phase 3 - ALI culture differentiation in inserts
