Frozen cells for DNA and RNA extraction

Frozen cell pellets can be produced from any of our cell lines in addition to your own deposits. Cell lines can be expanded to any number of cells, or volume of culture specified; however, for convenience the majority of our customers choose frozen, lymphoblastoid cell pellets prepared from four standard culture volumes.

Cell pellets can be utilised for DNA and/or RNA extraction and our protocols have been specifically designed to suit the differing requirements, in terms of point of cell harvest, reagents used, and freeze methods.

We also offer a Bespoke Cell Culture service, combining a wide range of cell culture systems with extensive cell culture expertise to address more specialised customer requirements.
