  • Temperature: 37C
  • Atmosphere: 5% CO2
  • Storage medium: Growth medium + 10% DMSO
  • Storage conditions: Liquid Nitrogen
  • Shipping conditions: Dry Ice
  • Initial handling information: Resuscitation: Rapidly thaw the frozen ampoule in a water bath at 37°C for 1-2 minutes. Transfer the contents to a centrifuge tube and slowly add 5-10ml of pre-warmed growth media. Remove a sample for counting. Centrifuge at 100-150g for 2-3 minutes to pellet cells (a centrifugation step to remove the cryoprotectant is essential. Seed at the recommend density, e.g. greater than 10,000 cells per cm2.
  • Subculture routine: Subculture non-confluent cultures using trypsin/EDTA and 1:3 to 1:4, i.e. seeding at 1-4 x10,000 cells/cm˛ .
