Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions are available for this Product.


Accumax has proven effective in dissociating clumped cells in suspension cultures of hybridomas, CHO, BHK, 293, COS and Sf9 cells. The solution performed extremely well in dissociating cell counting, viral transfection assays, cell sorting, flow cytometry, and bioreactor scale-up. It has also been used to create single cell suspensions from clumped cell cultures for accurate cell counting, detachment of cells from primary tissue, and the routine detachment of cells from standard tissue culture plasticware and adhesion coated plasticware.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Accumax is a cell detachment solution consisting of proteolytic and collagenolytic enzymes. Each bottle has 100 mL of 1x Accumax enzymes in Dulbecco′s PBS. There are no mammalian or bacterial-derived products found in Accumax.
