Improved Method for Culturing Guinea-Pig Macrophage Cells
Author and Affiliation:
Savage, J.(Alabama A&M University)
Abstract: Proper nutrients and periodic changes in culture medium maintain cell viability for a longer period. New method uses a thioglycolate solution, instead of mineral oil, to induce macrophage cells in guinea pigs and also uses an increased percent of fetal-calf bovine serum in cultivation medium. Macrophage cells play significant roles in the body's healing and defense systems.
