Learning tissue culture, specifically moDC generation

... (e.g. 24-well plate) in AIM-V, incubate for, say, 2 hours at +37C and wash the wells "firmly but gently" several times to remove non-adherent cells (i.e. lymphocytes). Add fresh medium and something like 100 ng/ml GM-CSF and incubate for 24 hours. Then add 25 ug/ml of poly-I:C and ...
