Comments

The cells are EBNA positive. 

ATCC confirmed this cell line is positive for the presence of Epstein-Barr (EBV) viral DNA sequences via PCR.

Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2001. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Cultures can be maintained by the addition of fresh medium or replacement of medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 1 to 2 x 105 viable cells/mL. Maintain cell density between 1x 105 and 1 x 106 viable cells/mL. Do not allow the cell density to exceed 2 x 106 cells/mL.
Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days (depending on cell density)
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase
