It is the responsibility of the end user to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

ACDP Guidance: Biological agents: Managing the risks in laboratories and healthcare premises.

Subculture Routine: Subcultivation Ratio: 1:5 - 1:10, split subconfluent cultures (70-80%). Harvest the cells using 0.05% Trypsin/EDTA at 37°C for 5 minutes. At thaw, the cells should be seeded at a density of 2-3 x 104cells/cm2. After recovery from thaw (48-72 hours), they can be seeded at 0.5-1.0 x 104cells/cm2. Flasks will require passaging twice weekly at a 1:10 seeding density.

Media renewal: 2-3 times per week.
Culture Conditions: Incubate the culture at 37°C with 5% CO2.
Cryoprotectant medium: 10% DMSO + 90% FCS.

Culture Medium: EMEM + 20% Foetal Calf Serum (FCS) + 25mM Glucose + 2mM L-Glutamine
Depositor: Dan Peet - University of Adelaide, South Australia
Country: Australia
