Cell biology research is complex, given the many variables that researchers must be aware of and account for to obtain meaningful results. Conducting experiments on an isolated population of cells, rather than a heterogeneous mixture of cells, is a common approach to reduce experimental complexity. This allows cell biologists to attribute observed effects and responses to a particular cell type with confidence. Therefore, mastering the basic techniques of cell isolation is a valuable skill for any cell biologist.
