Description

Application

Proven effective in detaching primary fibroblasts, endothelial cells, neurons, tumor cell lines, and insect cells. Performs exceptionally well in detaching cells for analysis of cell surface markers, virus growth assay, and flow cytometry as well as bioreactor scale-up. Does not contain mammalian or bacterial-derived products.

Features and Benefits

Ready-to-use liquid consisting of a proprietary mixture of proteolytic and collagenolytic enzymes for use in dissociation of cells from standard and adhesion-coated plasticware.

Formula variant

Prepared in Dulbecco′s PBS (0.2 g/L KCl, 0.2 g/L KH2PO4, 8 g/L NaCl, and 1.15 g/L Na2HPO4) containing 0.5 mM EDTA•4Na and 3 mg/L Phenol Red. Refer to Product Data Sheet on the website for product usage information.

Preparation Note

This product does contain phenol red. The product is shipped on dry ice and there could be significant CO2 buildup in the package. This CO2 may enter the solution and lower the pH slightly, giving an yellow-orange (around pH 6.8) vs. pinkish (around pH 7.8) color. The solution, if yellow-orange (acidic) should still be good to use as is, or sodium hydroxide may be added to adjust the pH.

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.
Does Product A6964, Accutase® solution, contain animal components?
Accutase is purified from a marine invertebrate.There are no other animal or bacterial derived proteins present.
What is the difference between Accutase and Accumax?
Accutase is a mixture of non-mammalian proteases.Accumax is accutase that has been augmented with DNase to reduce clumping associated with DNA release from damaged cells.
What is the appropriate cell dissociating product to be used for ES cells that will be injected into blastocysts?
Accutase®, productA6964, or Accumax (Accutase® with DNase), product A7089, will work well for dissociation of ES cells.The Accutase® product has protease and dispase activity to dissociate the cells. The Accumax product also has DNase to limit the aggregation that is caused by DNA released from ruptured cells during the dissociation/scraping.Please see the reference and link below for more information on the use of Accutase® with ES cells:Mol Reprod Dev. 2008 May;75(5):818-27
