Product Overview


Human brain astrocytes expressing GFP were isolated from normal human brain astrocytes and transfected with GFP lentiviral particles. Puromycin resistant, GFP-HBA is available proliferating culture with a confluency of>90 % upon request. The cells are provide @ passage 3. Astrocyte growth medium (CAT# NCC-2103-P58) contains 5% fetal bovine serum, and it is recommended to use growth supplements for cultivation. The cells have an average number doubling level>8 when cultured.

Cell Viability


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.


Frozen (Dry Ice/Liquid Nitrogen)


Keep frozen in liquid nitrogen until plating

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.
