Here, only general principles will be presented. Detailed descriptions of laboratory layout and equipment, procedures, and protocols for animal cell cultures have been published by FRESHNEY (2000) and DOYLEand GRIFFITHS(1998) and are also available on CD-ROM as multimedia guide including video sequences (FRESHNEY, 1999).

Under appropriate conditions the current output of a bioelectrochemical fuel cell is dependent on the number of microorganisms inside the fuel cell and, moreover, it is dependent on the concentration of the added substrate. One early fuel cell sensor was described by MELE et al. (1979). These authors applied Pseudornonas ovalis in a bioelectrochemical fuel cell to monitor the catabolic activity and YAHIRO et al. (1963) DAVISet al. (1983) WILLNER et al. (1998) BERKand CANFIELD (1964) TANAKA et al.

Theoretically, cell lines could be maintained in culture indefinitely, however, this is not advisable. Genetic mutations accumulating with continuous passages, the increased risk of microbial or cellular contamination and simple practicable reasons necessitate the storage of well-defined stocks. Other cell cultures have only a limited life span and, therefore, cannot be cultured for prolonged periods of time. Of particular importance is the availability of authenticated and validated cells stocks for production purposes.
