DSMZ Cell Culture Data:
Morphology:
90% round cells; 10% spindle-shaped, mostly adherent, a few cells in suspension
Medium:
80-90% TC 100 medium + 10-20% h.i. FBS (or 80-90% Grace´s insect medium + 10-20% h.i. FBS supplemented with L-Glutamine, hydrolyzed lactalbumin and yeastolate)
Subculture:
split culture 1:3 to 1:5 every 4-5 days; cells grow partly adherent, but the use of trypsin is not necessary, detach cells with rubber scraper; seed out at ca. 1 x 106 cells/25 cm2
Incubation:
25-29 °C without CO2 (keep lid of flask closed); temperature below 23 °C may lead to reduced growth and loss of adherence
Doubling time:
ca. 3 days
Harvest:
about 25 x 106 cells/80 cm2
Storage:
frozen with 70% medium, 20% FBS, 10% DMSO at about 2 x 106 cells/ampoule
 
DSMZ Scientific Data:
Mycoplasma:
negative in DAPI, microbiological culture, RNA hybridization, PCR assays
Species:
exclusion of primate and rodent origin by IEF and species PCR
Viruses:
PCR: SMRV -
