Title: Extraction Laboratory and Cell Line
Description: Anticancer drugs can now be tested on human cancer cell lines in vitro for cytotoxicity and effectiveness without the use of animals. In an assay like this, color changes in the wells show what proportion of cultured cancer cells remain alive after they have been exposed to the test drug. The plates are read by computer, and results are automatically sent to a centralized computer where they are converted into graphic reports.
