Product Name: Neonatal Rat Cardiac Fibroblasts
Catalog No: R1015
Product Format: Frozen or Proliferating
Cell Number: >90% confluent in T-25 flask/Frozen vial
Storage: 37°C or liquid Nitrogen
General Information: Neonatal Rat Cardiac Fibroblasts cells were isolated from
normal neonatal SD rats heart tissue. Passage 1 Neonatal Rat Cardiac Fibroblasts
cell can be shipped proliferated in a T-25 flask at >90 confluence, or frozen vial (> 5
x 105 cells). DMEM contains 5% Fetal calf serum (Full medium) is recommended for
cell culture and these cells have an average minimum population doubling levels >8
when cultured following the detailed protocol. Cells are tested negative for common
experimental animal pathogens, and mycoplasma in vitro. When you receive the
cells, leave the flask in 37°C CO2 incubator for 1 hour first, and then replace the
transport medium with fresh Full medium. Let the cells grow for 24hours before
Subculturing Proliferated Cells:
1. Rinse the cells in T25 flask with 5ml DPBS (Room Temperature, RT) twice.
2. Add 2ml of Trypsin/EDTA (RT) into T25flask (make sure the whole surface of
the T25 flask is covered with Trypsin/EDTA),and gently dispose the
Trypsin/EDTA solution within 10 seconds with aspiration.
3. Leave the T25 flask with the cells at RT for 1 minute (the cells will normally
come off the surface within 1-2 minute). Suspend the cells with 40ml of fresh
Full medium and the cell suspension is transferred directly into 4 x T25 flasks
(10ml each, and the cells are subcultured at 1:4ratio).
4. Culture medium (full medium) is changed every 2-3 days. The cells normally
become confluent within 7 days (when split with a ratio of 1:4).
Tissue Origin: SD rats heart tissue.
