ORDER INFORMATION
  • All cultures in the repository are grown in antibiotic-free media after primary culture, and then stored in liquid nitrogen. We use Eagle MEM with Earle's salts plus 10% fetal calf serum. The cells are frozen in the same media containing 10% DMSO.
  • It takes two to three weeks to grow the cells to shipping stage and to test for mycoplasma. The fee for each 25 cm 2 flask of cells is $75.00 (US). Multiples of the same cell strain will be $40.00 (US) per flask. (Within Canada, the fee is in Canadian dollars.)
