The COLO 829 cell line was established by G.E. Moore from a biopsy specimen taken from a patient prior to chemotherapy for metastatic melanoma.

Clinical Data
45 years
A cell line was also produced from peripheral blood B cells, and is available as COLO 829BL (ATCC CRL-1980)
Early passages of COLO 829 still contain a small percentage of melanin producing cells.
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 Remove medium, and rinse with 0.25% trypsin, 0.03% EDTA solution. Remove the solution and add an additional 1 to 2 mL of Trypsin-EDTA solution. Allow the flask to sit at room temperature (or at 37°C) until the cells detach.
Add fresh culture medium, aspirate and dispense into new culture flasks.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:6 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 to 3 times per week
culture medium 95%; DMSO, 5%
