my boss told me to start T cell cloning experiments but I don't manage to obtain enough feeder cells.
Because we don't have an irradiator, I treat 10^7 PBMcs with 500ul RPMI+mitomycin C (final concentration 25ug/ml).
After incubating them at 37°C 5%CO2 for 30', I wash at least 5 times with RPMI.
Finally, I count the cells and I find no more than 10^6 PBMCs!!
Could anyone give me some advice to improve the yield and tell me what's wrong with this protocol?
It would be wonderful to learn from your experience!!
Thanks in advance,
