Explain the in-vitro method of research. experiments performed in laboratory containers with living tissues or biological materials obtained by animals or people. tissue examples include: enzymes, cells, tissues, organs. Advantages of in-vitro: allow researchers to study a single effect of a substance or an action in isolation offer high sensitivity without interference, researchers get data faster and at a lower cost. 36.
