StemPro® Accutase® Cell Dissociation Reagent is a cell detachment solution of proteolytic and collagenolytic enzymes. Accutase® does not contain mammalian or bacterial derived products and is useful for the routine detachment of cells from standard tissue culture plasticware and adhesion coated plasticware, including Geltrex™, CELLStart™ and polymers. Accutase® performs exceptionally well in detaching primary and stem cells and maintaining high cell viabilty compared to animal origin enzymes such as trypsin. Some downstream applications following Accutase® treatment include analysis of cell surface markers, virus growth assay, cell proliferation, tumor cell migration assays, routine cell passage, production scale-up (bioreactor), and flow cytometry. Cell lines tested for Accutase® application include human embryonic stem cells, human mesenchymal stem cells, human neural stem cells and primary cells including macrophages, fibroblasts, keratinocytes, vascular endothelial cells, hepatocytes, and established cell lines such as adherent CHO and BHK cells and 293 cells.
