Help! Turned on UV light. Did I kill my cells?
Posted 23 June 2011 - 02:41 PM
I was working with A2058 melanoma cells in DMEM + 10% FBS.
My arms were in the hood and covered, and the rest of me was behind the glass. I am not too worried about my skin or eyes.
Thanks for your help!

Ask your self this question - "Do you trust the are not damaged enough to continue working with them?" From you asking your original question I suspect that you don't trust them... so "If in doubt, throw them out".

That's a good point. If I am unsure at all, I need to throw out the cells and not risk the entire study.
