Initial Handling Guidelines 1. Thaw the vial in 37ºC water bath approximately 1-2 minutes.
2. Transfer the cell suspension to a 15 ml/50 ml conical sterile polypropylene centrifuge tube containing pre-warmed culture medium. Wash vial with an additional culture medium to collect remaining cells, and centrifuge at 201 × g (rcf) for 5 minutes at room temperature.
3. Resuspend the cell pellet in 5 ml pre-warmed culture medium and count cell number. Seed cells in an appropriate cell culture flask at a density of 2×104 cells/cm2. This should allow for confluency within 48 hours.
4. Incubate the culture at 37ºC incubator with 5% CO2. Cultures should be monitored daily.
Subculture Guidelines Cells should be passaged when they have achieved 80-90% confluence. A partial media change 24 hours prior to subculture may be helpful to encourage growth.
Disease Carcinoma
Gender Male
Description Human wild-type HCT116 cell line as the recommended control.
