I am facing slow growth rates for u251 and u87. For U251 I am using low glucose DMEM and for U87 high glucose DMEM. I always work with the two cell lines at different times so media has not interchanged. U251 cells in a T75 flask looked close to confluent but had just 1.5 million cells! Does anyone who has worked with these cell lines have any tips to improve the growth rates?

I can't provide you personal advise, but you should find some information here and here.

So. Now that you have your first ever question on bioforum answered (or not), mail yourself your username and password so you don't forget them, and then come back soon to update us on how it all worked out. That's how you build Karma in science.
