What factors can contribute to rapid cell death/culture failure? Product FAQ


There are a number of events that can contribute to this:

1. Incorrect CO2 levels-monitor the level of CO2 manually with a Fyrite kit, available from Bacharach ( Check if the manual readings concur with the readings displayed on the incubator. If the incubator has a trace readout, check the printout for fluctuations in CO2 level. Check the settings to insure that CO2 levels are set at appropriate levels for your cell line (usually between 5 and 10%). Check line connections frequently for leaks. Avoid frequent opening and closing of incubator doors.
2. Temperature fluctuations in the incubator-Monitor the temperature of incubator with a good thermometer inside the incubator.
3. Fungizone or other preventive antibiotics/antimycotics are present at toxic concentrations-use at recommended levels.
4. Humidity is incorrect-check the water level in the water pan. Humidity is vital to appropriate gas exchange for many types of cells and media (i.e., appropriate CO2 levels are largely irrelevant for most cultures if the humidity level is not high enough).
5. Incorrect osmotic pressure in medium-check osmolality of complete medium. Most mammalian cells can tolerate an osmolality of 260 to 350 mOsm/kg. Additions of reagents such as HEPES and drugs may affect osmolality.
6. Contamination by microorganisms-bacterial and fungal contaminations are usually easily visible; symptoms of mycoplasma contamination are more subtle, and careful monitoring of culture morphology and regular testing are necessary to detect this type of contamination.
7. Inappropriate medium is being used-double-check that the medium used is appropriate for your cell type and culture application. For example, ensure that the medium being used for serum-free culture is actually designed for serum-free culture; make sure that appropriate selective drugs are used at appropriate levels; check the expiration dates for the reagents being used; and store medium at appropriate temperatures in the dark.
