Guidance on Good Cell Culture Practice A Report of the Second ECVAM Task Force on Good Cell Culture Practice

Sandra Coecke, Michael Balls, Gerard Bowe, John Davis, Gerhard Gstraunthaler, Thomas Hartung, Robert Hay, Otto-Wilhelm Merten, Anna Price, Leonard Schechtman, Glyn Stacey and William Stokes

The maintenance of high standards is fundamental to all good scientific practice, and is essential for maximising the reproducibility, reliability, credibility, acceptance and proper application of any results produced. The aim of this Guidance on Good Cell Culture Practice (GCCP) is to promote the maintenance of these standards and to reduce uncertainty in the development and application of animal and human cell and tissue culture procedures and products, by encouraging greater international harmonisation, rationalisation and standardisation of laboratory practices, quality control systems, safety procedures, recording and reporting, and compliance with laws, regulations and ethical principles.
