Cell Line Origin

Mouse x Mouse hybridoma, non-producing, serum-free

Cell Line Description

Sp2/0-Ag14 cell line (Sigma Catalogue number. 85072401) adapted to grow in the chemically defined protein- and peptide-free medium TurboDoma (Cell Culture Technologies). Suitable for use as a fusion parent for serum-free generation of hybridomas as well as a host for the production of recombinant proteins.


Fusion partner for generation of serum-free hybridomas, host for the expression of recombinant genes.

Culture Medium

TurboDoma medium + 4mM Glutamine. When freezing cells down use TurboDoma medium (50:50 conditioned medium:fresh medium) + 4mM Glutamine + 10% DMSO.

Subculture Routine

Viability may be poor on resuscitation and may initially decrease further. Full recovery may take up to 2 weeks. A centrifugation step to remove the cryoprotectant is essential. Rapidly thaw the frozen ampoule in a water bath at 37°C for 1-2 minutes. Transfer the contents to a centrifuge tube and slowly add 5-10ml of pre-warmed growth media. Remove a sample for counting. Centrifuge at 100g for 2-3 minutes to pellet cells and seed at a relatively high density of 5-7 x 105 cells/ml. Leave culture flask upright and observe regularly until viable proliferating cells are seen. Once established use a split ratio of 1:2 approximately every 4 to 5 days; 5% CO2; 37°C..

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.
