Other Notes

Cultures from HPA Culture Collections and supplied by Sigma are for research purposes only. Enquiries regarding the commercial use of a cell line are referred to the depositor of the cell line. Some cell lines have additional special release conditions such as the requirement for a material transfer agreement to be completed by the potential recipient prior to the supply of the cell line. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.

Application

HeLa cell line has been used to study whether Zika virus (ZIKV) infection alters centrosome number and spindle positioning in neural progenitor cells. It has also been used to evaluate the cytotoxicity of extracts, fruits and jams from Sorbus sps.

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:3 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1.3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% Trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C.

Cell Line Description

Derived from a cervical carcinoma from a 31 year old female. This was the first aneuploid line derived from human tissue maintained in continuous cell culture. Susceptible to Poliovirus type I and adenovirus type 3. Identified as a contaminant in many other cell lines. The cells should be handled under laboratory containment level 2. Ethnicity: Black.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?
If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis. These documents are located on the product detail page under Useful Links & Tools. Click on the following link to search for a Certificate of Analysis. Please click the following link to see the details on our Product Dating Information.
How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?
A Certificate of Analysis is available by lot number and can be obtained through our Advanced Search Option: http://www.sigmaaldrich.com/catalog/AdvancedSearchPage.do
How do I find price and availability?
There are several ways to find pricing and availability for our products.  Once you log onto our website, you will find the price and availability displayed on the product detail page. You can contact any of our Customer Sales and Service offices to receive a quote.  USA customers:  1-800-325-3010 or view local office numbers. 
What is the Department of Transportation shipping information for this product?
Transportation information can be found in Section 14 of the product's (M)SDS. To access the shipping information for this material, use the link on the product detail page for the product, or search here. 
My question is not addressed here, how can I contact Technical Service for assistance?
Use the option to the right to "Ask a Question" by email of a Technical Service Scientist.
How do I handle Cell Line frozen cells upon arrival?
Upon receipt, frozen ampules should be transferred directly to vapor phase liquid nitrogen without delay (-135°C) or liquid phase liquid nitrogen if vapor phase is not available. DO NOT use a -80°C freezer as an alternative; this will result in loss of viability.
Why is Vapor Phase Liquid Nitrogen preferred for storage of Cell Line cells?
If ampules are immersed into liquid phase of liquid nitrogen, it increases the risk of the liquid seeping into the vial. This could lead to problems of cross-contamination and increased risk of the ampule exploding when thawed.
How do I resuscitate/thaw frozen Cell Line cells?
A protocol for thawing cells can be found in the ECACC handbook.  This is available online at: http://www.sigmaaldrich.com/life-science/cell-culture/learning-center/ecacc-handbook/cell-culture-techniques-12.html#Protocol%202
What medium should I use when I thaw the Cell Line cells?
The medium for each cell line is listed on the product page. It is specific to each cell line. If not visible on the Sigma-Aldrich website product page, the HPA website also contains the same information (www.hpacultures.org.uk). The product number for the cell line is the same on either site.
What passage are my Cell Line cells?
If the passage of the cells is known, it is listed on the product page at the HPA website (www.hpacultures.org.uk).
How many Cell Line cells are in the vial?
Each vial of cells contains 2-3 x 106 cells in 1 ml of freezing media. This is in a 1.8 mL ampule.  For exceptionally large cells, counts may decrease. Suspension cells, generally smaller cells, may contain as many as 4-5 x 106 cells/vial to assure optimal viability upon thaw.
Are my Cell Line cells mycoplasma tested?
ECACC routinely tests all manufactured cell banks for mycoplasma.
How to freeze down Cell Line cells to make a cell stock?
A protocol for freezing down cells for cell stocks can be found in the ECACC manual on the Sigma-Aldrich website (http://www.sigmaaldrich.com/life-science/cell-culture/learning-center/ecacc-handbook/cell-culture-techniques-12.html#Protocol%207)
Are the Cell Line cells tested for viral pathogens?
HPA Cultures does not perform any viral testing on the cell lines.
  What kind of solution is the A5955 - Antibiotic Antimycotic Solution (100×), Stabilized product suspended in?
A5955 - Antibiotic Antimycotic Solution (100×), Stabilized is supsended in a sodium citrate buffer solution. Source: Israel production group
