Our products can be used for cell culture, which can be bacterial, animal, plant, or fungus. They cannot be used with human cells because they are not treated for that purpose. There are 2 kinds of dishes to grow tissue culture cells. The first type is designed for adherent cells and have been treated chemically to promote cell adhesion, these are called tissue culture dishes. Regular petri dishes have not been treated, and are less expensive, they can be used in laboratories, clinics, hospitals, schools, etc. to culture micro-organisms.
