The word “passage” in cell culture has its specific meaning; however, we are wondering can we use it as verb such as: “cell are maintained and passaged in chemical containing medium for 2 weeks”

During these 2 weeks we expect cells will reach passage point ever 2 or 3 days, we just continue normal cell passage processing until the end of 2 weeks.
Can we use passage as verb as shown?
If this is not how “passage” used, what is the best word?

Yes you can use passage as a verb. Searching google with "cells were passaged" (keep the quotes) returns thousands of results. Some people also use "pass" in stead of passage.

Absolutly you can use 'cells were passaged'. So yeah either as a noun or a verb is fine!
