Mouse Stem Cells (ES or iPS)
A minimum of two wells on a 24-well plate per clone, and it is preferable to have 3-4 wells plated at varying densities. The clones need to be 50-80% confluent and require media change the night before submission.
Mouse Tissue (Fibroblasts)
Fresh skin (ear, tail), fresh lung, or embryo (mouse embryonic fibroblasts)
Minimum sample sizes: 6 mm ear, 1 cm tail clip, ½ lobe of lung, early passage fibroblast culture.
Tissue is collected and sent to the laboratory in sterile transport media at room temperature. Sample must be received with a completed requisition form. Tissues can be stored (refrigerated in transport media for 24 hours), but should be set up fresh when possible. Transport media available upon request.
For other sample types, please contact us for instruction.
