This is the complete description of the cell line that you selected.
By clicking on a generic term (e.g., SPECIES) you will go to the corresponding index (e.g., index of species), while by clicking on a specific term (e.g., retinoblastoma) you will go to the list of corresponding cell lines (e.g., retionoblastoma cell lines).
ICLC catalog code: HTL99029
Continuous culture, grown as suspension
multicellular clusters morphology

DEPOSITOR: Dr F. Tosetti, Molecular Biology Dept, IST at ABC, Genoa, Italy
Cell line available for distribution. For non-commercial investigative use only
Available in the following LABORATORY:
- IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino (ICLC, Genova)
RPMI 1640 + 2mM L-Glutamine + 15% FBS; Freezing medium: 90% FBS + 10% DMSO; maintain cultures between 5-9 x 10^5 cells/ml; split 1:2-1:4 (not disaggregate the clusters); 37C, 5% CO2.
