Clinical Data 35 years Caucasian female The patient received prior radiation therapy. The patient was a smoker. 15 pack years. 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 5% Subculturing Volumes used in this protocol are for 75 cm2 flasks; proportionally reduce or increase amount of dissociation medium for culture vessels of other sizes. Remove and discard culture medium. Briefly rinse the cell layer with Ca++/Mg++ free Dulbecco's phosphate-buffered saline (D-PBS) or 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin - 0.53 mM EDTA solution. Add 2.0 to 3.0 mL of Trypsin-EDTA solution to flask and observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer is dispersed (usually within 5 minutes). Note: To avoid clumping do not agitate the cells by hitting or shaking the flask while waiting for the cells to detach. Cells that are difficult to detach may be placed at 37°C to facilitate dispersal. Add 2.0 to 3.0 mL of complete growth medium and aspirate cells by gently pipetting. Transfer cell suspension to a centrifuge tube and spin at approximately 125 X g for 5 to 10 minutes. Discard supernatant. Resuspend the cell pellet in fresh growth medium. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to culture vessels. Incubate cultures at 37°C. Subcultivation ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:3 is recommended. Cryopreservation Freeze medium: complete culture medium described above supplemented with 7.5% (v/v) DMSO.
