Re: MEG-01 cell line cultivation Problem!!!

I think I have the same problem with MEG 01. I defrost them 3 days ago and they are with many fragments suspended in media with some attached cells. I did not notice an obvious in growth until today. This is the first time I work with MEG 01. How could I differentiate If my cells are dying or this i...

Plasmid yield/concentration

"High yield plasmid" means that host cells make a lot of copies per cell and that usually results in high plasmid concentration in the final DNA preparation. Alternatively, larger volume of stating material to smaller volume elution can ...
