Rat Brain Cortex-derived Astrocytes
Cryopreserved ampule of Rat Brain Cortex Astrocytes containing ≥ 1 million cells
Each vial contains approximately one million cells. Astrocytes are easy to melt and culture. Astrocytes can be harvested and re-plated or cryopreserved for later use. The cells were transported overnight.
Recommended medium: CocKit™ Astrocyte Growth Medium Kit (NCC20-9PZ02)
• Positive immunofluorescence staining for glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP)
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.
