Methods for Maintaining Insect Cell Cultures Insect cell cultures are now commonly used in insect physiology, developmental biology, pathology, and molecular biology. As the field has advanced from methods development to a standard procedure, so has the diversity of scientists using the technique. This paper describes methods that are effective for maintaining various insect cell lines. The procedures are differentiated between loosely or non-attached cell strains, attached cell strains, and strongly adherent cell strains.
Passage of Adherent Cell Lines (subculture). Remove medium from culture container, rinse with PBS, expose cells to trypsin, incubate, stop trypsin activity by adding serum containing medium, dissociate cells, dilute and
return to incubator.
