Providing the Best Tools... Achieving the Best Research

Tissue Culture


Cell Line Propagation & Maintenance - Price List

Cost includes:

  • Thawing, expansion, and freezing of cell lines
  • Harvesting of the number of cells that the investigator requests
  • Histopaquing of cells to separate live from dead (as needed)


Cell Line Acquisition - discount varies

Cost includes:

  • Purchase of ATCC cell lines at a discount to the investigator
  • Purchase of BSL-2 and lower
  • Shipping and handling charges apply but the costs will be split between investigators when multiple orders are placed at the same time


Liquid Nitrogen Storage (LN2) - $225 / year

Cost includes:

  • Storage of up to 100 vials at -190oC
  • Only certain vials are compatible with the LN2 storage system. Please inquire for more details.


Mycoplasma Testing - $70/sample for 1-3 samples, $45/sample for more than 3 samples

Cost includes:

  • Testing of the four most common mycoplasma and acholeplasma species using a luciferase-based method:
    • M. arginini
    • M. hyorhinis
    • A. laidlawii
    • M. orale
  • *Investigator should provide at least 2 ml of culture supernatant from a confluent culture

Monoclonal Antibody Production


Culture Supernatant:

$0.50 per ml of monoclonal antibody supernatant (approximately 10-30 ug/ml)


CL-1000 Integra Bioreactor:

  • Highly concentrated (0.5-1.5 mg/ml)* antibody supernatant, free of serum and host immunoglobulin
  • *Concentrations vary depending on the hybridoma
  • The price per mL varies depending on the quantity of supernatant ordered. The price begins at $65 per mL and decreases as the volume of the order increases. Charges include all supplies and labor. Please inquire for more details.
