Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:5 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-2x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
