Description

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.

Depositor and originator: Dr J Jarvis, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge

Application

Fusion partner

NS0 Cell Line from murine myeloma has been used to culture NS0 cells expressing CD19scFv (a binding domain of B-lymphocyte antigen CD19) to screen hybridoma clones.

Cell Line Origin

Mouse myeloma

Culture Medium

RPMI 1640 (R0883) + 2mM L-Glutamine (G7513) + 10% FBS (F2442)

Subculture Routine

Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37°C. Cells can adhere loosely to the culture vessel surface; remove by tapping against the flask. Cultures that are more than 2 days old may have to be scraped.

Cell Line Description

NS0 is a non-Ig secreting, non-light chain-synthesising subclone of NS-1 (P3/NS1/1-Ag4-1 ECACC catalogue no. 85011427). The cells are resistant to 10μM azaguanine, cells die in the presence of HAT medium. The NS0 cell line is the property of the Medical Research Council (MRC). ECACC is unable to supply this cell line to commercial entities unless a license has been first secured from LifeArc (formerly known as MRC Technology). Requests for commercial use of this cell line will be forwarded to LifeArc.

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.
How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?
The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.
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 orview local office numbers.
Howdo Ihandle Cell Linefrozen 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 Linecells?
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.
What medium should I use when I thaw the Cell Linecells?
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 Linecells 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 Linecells mycoplasma tested?
ECACC routinely tests all manufactured cell banks for mycoplasma.
How to freeze down Cell Linecells to make a cell stock?
A protocol for freezing down cells for cell stocks can be found in the ECACC manual.
Are the Cell Linecells tested for viral pathogens?
HPA Cultures does not perform any viral testing on the cell lines.
