RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 3-6x10,000cells/cm² using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
The A2780 human ovarian cancer cell line was established from tumour tissue from an untreated patient. Cells grow as monolayer and in suspension in spinner cultures. A2780 is the parent line to the cisplatin resistant cell line A2780 cis (ECACC No. 93112517) and the adriamycin resistant cell line A2780 ADR (ECACC No. 93112520).
