Handling of Arriving Cells
When you receive the cells in a frozen vial, you can transfer the vial of cells into a -80ºC freezer for short term storage or a liquid nitrogen tank for long term storage. Thaw the cells in a 37°C water bath, and then transfer the cells into a T25 flask pre-coated with Universal Coating Solution (UBP-01) as described in detail in Subculture Protocol.
Change medium every 2-3 days and cells usually become confluent within 7 days (when split at a 1:3 ratio).
