Why are there no viable primary neuron cells/astrocytes/rat glial precursor cells after thawing the cell stock? Product FAQ


These cells are very fragile. We recommend that you follow the procedure in the manual and use the correct medium. Fast thawing is the key for healthy culture. There are several critical points to consider:

- Pre-rinse all materials with medium before use. Do not use PBS, DPBS, or HBSS to rinse because they do not contain proteins.
- Thaw cells quickly and do not expose cells to air.
- Transfer cells to a pre-rinsed tube first, then add slowly add medium in a drop-wise manner. Do not add the full amount of medium to the cells at once because this may lead to decreased cell viability due to osmotic shock.
- Use pre-warmed complete growth medium and correct seeding density.
- Matrix coating is required for some cell cultures.
- For primary neuron cells, do not centrifuge the cells as they are extremely fragile upon recovery from cryopreservation.
