Lot-specific information such as donor information is stated in the Certificate of Analysis.

Recommendations:

  • Always count the number of viable cells after thawing
  • Recommended culture vessel coating: Type I Collagen
  • Recommended cell culture medium: ARE Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Culture Medium
  • Recommended seeding density: 5,000 viable cells/cm2
  • Recommended centrifugation speed: 620 x g for 5 min

Thawing & Plating:

  • Thaw the cells quickly in a 37°C water bath until just prior to complete thawing
  • Wipe the outside of the vial with 70% ethanol
  • Gently resuspend the cells and transfer to a 15 mL sterile conical tube
  • Slowly add 10 mL of pre-warmed ARE Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Culture Medium
  • Rinse the cryovial with 1 mL of medium to ensure all of the cells are transferred
  • Centrifuge the cells at 620 x g for 5 min
  • Carefully remove the supernatant and resuspend in 2 mL of pre-warmed ARE Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Culture Medium and perform a cell count
  • Dilute the cells into the required volume of pre-warmed ARE Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Culture Medium
  • Seed cells into the culture vessel (coated with Type I Collagen) at the recommended seeding density
  • Once the cells have attached (after 24 h), replace the culture medium with fresh pre-warmed ARE Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Culture Medium
  • Frequency of media changes: Every 2 days with pre-warmed medium

Coat the culture vessels with Type I Collagen or use pre-coated culture vessels

Passaging:

  • Passage when the culture reaches: 80-90% confluent
  • Population doubling time: ~3 days
  • Recommended passaging reagent: Trypsin/EDTA
  • Remove culture medium and wash culture vessel with PBS
  • Add an appropriate volume of trypsin/EDTA solution to the culture vessel
  • Incubate for 3-4 minutes at 37o C until the cells have rounded up
  • Gently resuspend the cells in the flask with the spent trypsin/EDTA
  • Neutralize the trypsin with ARE Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Culture Medium
  • Transfer the cell suspension to a sterile conical tube and centrifuge at 620 x g for 5 min
  • Carefully remove the supernatant and resuspend in 2 mL of pre-warmed ARE Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Culture Medium and perform a cell count
  • Dilute the cells into the required volume of pre-warmed ARE Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Culture Medium
  • Seed cells into the culture vessel (coated with Type I Collagen) at the recommended seeding density

Do not passage the cells more than twice as the cells may become senescent and lose their biological functionality.
