Media for animal cell culture cannot be sterilized by steam because they contain a lots of heat labile components therefore they are sterilized by filtration method which include membrane filters which with variable pore sizes (0.1-0.4 pum) for removal of bacterial, fungal, micro plasma and viral contaminants. and even if we filter the cells from the small pore size then we have to destruct the animal cells to filter.
