LABORATORY PROCEDURES FOR ANIMAL & HUMAN CELL LINES

Appendix

REFERENCE NO: AHC/1998/2/3 Appendix 2


 TITLE: CHARACTERISTICS OF CELL LINES


Each cell line is distinguished by characteristic features which render these cells unique and biomedically or biotechnologically interesting. While the Ressource Centre perform certain tests to ensure its quality and identity program and even analyze certain phenotypical parameters of the cells, the Ressource Centre is in no position to verify and further examine every possible aspect of a given cell line. Some basic characteristics of most cell lines have been described in the literature quoted; certainly, many more papers have been published on each cell line that, taken together, elaborate a detailed phenotype of each cell line. Certain characteristics claimed to be expressed by a cell line might not be found reproducibly on every subclone or even the seeding culture. The Ressource Centre cannot be held responsible for claims made by other scientists in the literature regarding certain features of the cell lines that might not be identified on the cell culture the Ressource Centre provide.
