Name of Products Immortalized Human Fibroblast Cell
Catalogue Number UBP-IHF
Product Format Frozen Vial
Cell Number > 5×10[5] cells/vial
GENERAL INFORMATION: Immortalized Human Fibroblast Cell were isolated from Normal Human Skin. The cells are shipped in a frozen vial with more than 5 x 105 cells/vial. The Universal Full Growth Medium (UBP-01B) are recommended to culture the cells and these cells have a minimum population doubling Capacity > 15 when cultured following the detailed protocol described below.
CHARACTERIZATION OF THE CELLS
1. IHF cells are tested negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, and mycoplasma.
PRODUCT USAGE The cells are offered for Research Use Only.
SHIPPING Frozen Vials in a Dry Ice Package.
 
PROTOCOLS FOR THAWING THE CELLS AND SUBCULTURE
A) Pre-coating of T25 flasks- Add 2ml each Universal Coating Solution (UBP-01) into a T25 flask to cover the whole surface of the flask, 5 mins later, dispose the excessive coating solution by aspiration and the flask is ready to be used (although solution containing other extracellular matrix, i.e. gelatin, collagen, and fibronectin, can be used, make sure to optimize the conditions in advance).
B) Thaw the frozen cell vial in a 37C water bath first, and then transfer the cells into the pre-coated T25 flask with 10ml of UBP-01B medium, cells usually become confluent with 5-7 days.
C) To passage the cells, rinse the cells in a T25 flask with 5ml HBSS (RT) twice; then add 2ml Universal Detachment Solution (RT) (UBP-23) into one T25 flask; gently dispose the excessive Universal Detachment Solution within 20 seconds by aspiration.
D) Leave the T25 flask with the cells at RT or 37C for 1 min (most cells usually will detach from the surface within 1-2 mins; or monitor the cells under a microscope until most of cells become rounded up, and then gently tap the flask against the bench surface, and the cells will move on the surface of the flask when monitoring under microscope.
E) Add 5ml Universal Neutralization Buffer and spin down the cells with 800g centrifugation for 5 mins.
G) Re-suspend the cell pellet with 10 or 15ml Full medium and transfer 5 ml each into 2 or 3 pre-coated T25 flasks (for 1/2 to 1/3 subculture ratio).
H) Change medium every 2 or 3days and the cells usually become confluent within 7 days (when split at a 1/3 ratio).
