Osteoblast Culture Kit

Background

Bone metabolism is composed of balanced bone formation of osteoblasts and bone resorption of osteoclasts. Osteoblast Culture Kit (Rat) (PMC-OBC02-COS) contains frozen osteoblasts isolated from rat calvariae and culture medium. Osteoblast Culture Kit (Rat) (PMC-OBC02-COS) is a useful to study osteoblast and osteogenesis.

Protocols

<1-1. Cultured with the 25 cm2 flask>

  1. Thaw the culture media in a 37°C water bath with gentle shaking.
  2. Quickly place osteoblast vial in a 37°C water bath until the contents are thawed.
  3. Transfer thawed cells into a 15 ml centrifuge tube containing 10 ml of culture medium and centrifuge for 5 minutes at 4°C at 600 x g for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the supernatant, re-suspend cells in 10 ml of culture medium and centrifuge at 4°C at 600 x g for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the supernatant, and re-suspend the cell pellet in approximately 5 ml of culture medium.
  6. Transfer the cell suspension to 25 cm2 flask and incubate the flask at 37oC under 5% CO2 and 100% humidity.
  7. The next day, change the medium.

* Approximately 2-3 days of culture, cells become confluent. For subculture, please refer to the protocol below. Subculture of the cells can be performed up to passage 2.

<1-2. Subculture >

  1. Subculture the cells when they are confluent.
  2. Prepare sterile washing buffer (Hank’s BSS or PBS(-)), and trypsin/EDTA solution. Warm washing buffer in a 37°C water bath prior to use.
  3. Rinse the cells with 5 ml of washing buffer twice.
  4. Remove washing buffer and then add 3 ml of trypsin/EDTA solution into flask (25 cm2 flask).
  5. Gently rock the flask to make sure that the cells are covered by trypsin/EDTA solution and then immediately remove trypsin/EDTA solution.
  6. Incubate the flask in a 37°C incubator until cells are completely rounded up (monitored with inverted microscope). Approximately it takes 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Add culture medium to the flask and transfer detached cells to centrifuge tube, and then centrifuge the centrifuge tube at 4°C at 600 x g for 5 minutes.
  8. After removing the supernatant, re-suspend cells in culture medium and centrifuge for 5 minutes at 4°C at 600 x g for 5 minutes.
  9. Remove the supernatant, and re-suspend cells in culture medium. Count cells and plate cells in a new plate or flask (Adjust cell density to the desired experiment).

* Approximately 2-3 days of culture, cells become confluent when seeding density is 30,000 cells/ cm2
