Rat Schwann cells (RSC) are the main glial cells in the peripheral nervous system, providing physical and chemical support for neurons. Myelin Schwann cells form an insulating sheath around neuron cell bodies (sensory ganglia) and fibers (sensory nerves and motor neurons). Regular exposure of the axon membrane to the extracellular space (myelin sheath space) at the Raniver node allows the action potential to propagate quickly along the axon. RSC is important for the morphology, survival and growth of axons and neurons. Studies have also shown that Schwann cells can promote neuronal recovery and experimental spinal cord regeneration.

Mycoplasma Testing
The cell line has been screened using the luciferase based mycoplasma detection kit to confirm the absence of mycoplasma species.
Sterility Testing
Sterility testing was performed in accordance with USP and EP regulations. All of our sterility testing is performed in an isolator or clean room environments. The cell line has been screened using the membrane filtration testing methods to confirm the absence of aerobic, anaerobic and fungi microorganisms.
Genetic Stability Testing
Cell genetic stability study was perfomed under ICH guidelines. We provide guidance on the appropriate testing program upon your requirements.

Handling Advice
Frozen cells: Upon receipt, frozen ampoules should be transferred directly to gaseous phase liquid nitrogen without delay, unless they are to be used straight away.

Growing cells: Growing cell cultures should be checked on receipt using an inverted microscope. Immediately check the cell density upon arrival for any obvious defects. If the cell density is too high (more than 80% confluent) subculture the cells (harvest and reseed) immediately.

For detailed instructions on the thawing procedure of frozen cells and the culture of adherent or suspended cells, please feel free to contact us by email or phone.
