Culture Conditions

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:4 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 5000 - 30000 cells/cm² . Cells are dislodged by mechanical agitation; 5% CO₂; 28°C. Freeze in 10% DMSO: 90% Foetal Bovine Serum .

Culture Medium

EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS) (Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3) level of 1.1g/l is recommended).

The Culture Collections represent deposits of cultures from world-wide sources. While every effort is made to ensure details distributed by Culture Collections are accurate, Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data supplied. References where quoted are mainly attributed to the establishment of the cell culture and not for any specific property of the cell line, therefore further references should be obtained regarding cell culture characteristics. Passage numbers where given act only as a guide and Culture Collections does not guarantee the passage number stated will be the passage number received by the customer.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are for research purposes only. Enquiries regarding the commercial use of a cell line are referred to the depositor of the cell line. Some cell lines have additional special release conditions such as the requirement for a material transfer agreement to be completed by the potential recipient prior to the supply of the cell line.
