Product Usage

Dilute 1:100 in 30% ethanol prepared with autoclaved de-ionized water. Prior to plating cells, allow solution to evaporate in uncovered culture vessels placed in a cell culture hood or a clean air cabinet. Serves as an excellent substratum attachment matrix for PC12 cells, neurons and many other cell types.


All lots are tested for PC12 cell attachment in a neurite regeneration assay. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/701359.


Shipped frozen. Avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles. Store undiluted at 4° C for up to 1 year or prepare appropriately sized aliquots and keep indefinitely at ≤ -20° C.
