freezing HEK293 cells - (Dec/19/2006 )
I've to freeze my HEK293cells for about 15-20 days as im going for a vaccation.Is it okay to keep the cells in cryobox in -80?Or should it be liquid nitrogen alwayz,even for few days??
I routinely freeze down cells and stor in -80C for a few days to months. They are quite stable.
I do like scolix as well
I think If you have stocks made and stored at -196 degree C, why not thaw that after coming back from holidays?
But storing cells at -80 degree C is okay as you are going to store them only for 20-25 days.
