Can I call my cell a established cell line? - (Aug/06/2006 )
I have developed a cell culture (crustacean) that I have maintained over 1 year and subcultured over 50 times. Can I now call it a cell line? Basically we are very new to cell culture in my lab & I am the first person to start; so I hvae no idea as to what are the criteria to call a culture a cell line. What are the expts that should be done efore submission of the cell line? Please advice.
I think perhaps this link may help you?
