For the development of efficient tumour therapies, in-vitro testing of pharmaceutical products in reliable cell culture test systems is of utmost importance. Using specific primary cells, custom-made therapies have now been developed. The establishment of such test systems requires the isolation of primary human tumour cells by dissociating the tissue without damaging these cells. The goal of all cell isolation procedures is to maximise the yield of dissociated cells that are viable and functionally active.
