Morphology of ATCC® TIB-71
What is the morphology of ATCC® TIB-71 ™, RAW 264.7 cells?

ATCC® TIB-71 ™ is designated as an adherent line and is handled like a monolayer, however the culture can have mixed adherent and suspension populations.

In the initial stages of culturing ATCC® TIB-71 ™, the cells attach and appear cuboidal-like with thin extensions. As the culture becomes more dense, there may be another layer of rounded cells attached to the original monolayer. In extremely heavy cultures cells will release into the media. In heavy cultures there are usually both attached and suspended cells.

A photomicrograph of this cell line is available in the ATCC® TIB-71 ™ product description on the ATCC website.
