Offering innovative, inexpensive self contained kits and PowerPoint presentations for hands-on laboratory experiences and instruction in biology, biotechnology and genetics.

Act today, to enliven your laboratory program by incorporating a CellServ kit and/or a PowerPoint Presentation. Invite the specialist into your classroom and forge a strong teaching alliance by utilizing our resources.

CellServ responds to the pressing need of forward-looking instructors who want to incorporate exciting, novel, cell-culture based exercises into their laboratory programs. Each topic addressed by a CellServ kit, which serves 30 students, provides instructors with an opportunity to expand on the importance of the biological principles associated with the topic at hand. CellServ offers cost-effective materials and instructions that:

  1. familiarize students with the underlying principles of cell culture technology and its application to diverse areas of research,
  2. permit students to participate in a uniquely different and important technology,
  3. allow students to sharpen their observation and quantitative microscopy skills and
  4. reduce instructor preparation time.

CellServ also offers an extensive line of PowerPoint Presentations on varied core biotechnology topics to enhance the learning experience of students without increasing the burden on teachers.

CellServ has been in existence since 1989 and has served over 360,000 student-lab units nationwide. It has been adopted by several school districts and is recommended in several published manuals. Attesting to the value of the instructional material is the repeated and expanding use of the service.


CellServ is a program of the Foundation for the Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD.  FAES is organized to foster scientific research and education by facilitating communication among scientists and by sponsoring formal instruction in the sciences.  It was founded by scientists who believe learning, research, and teaching are mutually reinforcing processes essential to the evolution of science.  In 1984, the FAES introduced the Bio-Trac program.  Bio-Trac is an extensive series of daytime lecture and laboratory training courses in the field of biotechnology that are open to the scientific community.  Their accredited training courses have provided training to over 9,000 scientists since its inception.
