Complete Growth Medium DMEM (ATCC 30-2002), 10% FBS (ATCC 30-2020), 3µg/mL Blasticidin (Life Technologies A11139-03)

Volumes used in this protocol are for 75 cm2 flasks; proportionally reduce or increase amount of dissociation solutions for culture vessels of other sizes.

  1. Remove and discard spent medium.
  2. Briefly rinse with dPBS (ATCC 30-2200), 1 mL per 25 cm2 and discard rinse solution.
  3. Add 0.25% trypsin  (ATCC 30-2101), 1mL per 25 cm2.  Place at 37°C for 2-3 minutes, until 90% of the cells have detached. 
  4. Rapt flask gently to ensure cells are detached. Add complete growth media, 1 mL per 25 cm2 to neutralize trypsin.
  5. Centrifuge cells at 200 x g for 5 min at room temperature.
  6. Remove supernatant. Resuspend pellet in 5 to 10 mL Complete Growth Medium.
  7. Count cells, and seed 5.0 x 103 to 8.0 x 103 viable cells/cm2 to new culture vessels.
