Biosafety Level 1

 [These primary cells are not known to harbor an agent recognized to cause disease in healthy adult humans. Handle as a potentially biohazardous material under at least Biosafety Level 1 containment. Cells derived from primate lymphoid tissue may fall under the regulations of 29 CFR 1910.1030 Bloodborne Pathogens. 

ATCC recommends that appropriate safety procedures be used when handling all primary cells and cell lines, especially those derived from human or other primate material. Detailed discussions of laboratory safety procedures are provided in Laboratory Safety: Principles and Practice, 2nd ed. (ASM Press, Washington, DC) (Fleming et al., 1995) and Caputo, J.L. Biosafety procedures in cell culture. (1988) J. Tissue Culture Methods 11:223. Appropriate safety procedures should always be used with this material. Laboratory safety is discussed in the following publication: Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories, 5th ed. HHS Publication No. (CDC) 93-8395. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Washington DC: U.S. Government Printing Office; 2007.

Human Material Precaution 
All tissues used for isolation are obtained under informed consent and conform to HIPAA standards to protect the privacy of the donor’s personal health information. It is best to use caution when handling any human cells. We recommend that all human cells be accorded the same level of biosafety consideration as cells known to carry HIV. With infectious virus assays or viral antigen assays, even a negative test result may leave open the possible existence of a latent viral genome.

Comments Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) have a limited lifespan in culture and should only be thawed immediately prior to their intended use. ATCC does not recommend maintaining peripheral blood mononuclear cells in culture in the absence of application-specific growth factors. 

Peripheral blood mononuclear cells are a heterogeneous population of blood cells with a single round nucleus and include macrophages, dendritic cells, monocytes and lymphocytes.

Complete Growth Medium Peripheral blood mononuclear cells have a limited lifespan in culture and should only be thawed immediately prior to their intended use. ATCC does not recommend maintaining peripheral blood mononuclear cells in culture in the absence of application-specific growth factors.
