U937 Cell Pellets
Our cells pellets are produced from cells harvest in exponential phase.
U-937 cells are a model cell line used in biomedical research. They were isolated from the histiocytic lymphoma of a 37 year old male patient and are used to study the behaviour and differentiation of monocytes. U937 cells mature and differentiate in response to a number of soluble stimuli, adopting the morphology and characteristics of mature macrophages.
U937 cells Production
U937 cells are grown in sonoperfused fedbatch (cytostat) mode at a constant concentration of 5×106 cells/ml (cell viability: 93%-99%) under GLP conditions in our facility in Mons, Belgium. Cells are harvested in exponential phase.
Cell pellets are prepared by low speed centrifugation, rinsed with phosphate buffer saline, snap frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored at -85°C.
The cell pellets are not prepared in aseptic conditions and are not intended to be used as seed for a new culture.
Research Use Only
Our U937 cell pellets are used by research or production entities worldwide for the study of biochemical processing, high throughput screening or purification of biological material from human origin. For published papers reporting the use of our extract, please check out our references list
Cultures are screened for the presence of bacteries, yeast, fungi and mycoplasma (DNA amplification). Sera used in the culture medium are CE certified from South American origin.
