IL-3 dependent murine pro B cell line; the precise origin of the cell line is unclear; however, performing May-Grünwald-Giemsa staining provides evidence that the cells are indeed from a lymphatic back ground. Cells were apparently not derived from BALB/c, but from C3H mouse. Direct publication is not available, but for related publications see references.

  • Q & A
  • Customer Review
Can you provide the QC of the cell line? For example, mycoplasma test? Do you have the genomic data to make sure there's no contamination.

Yes, of course. We can provide you with the COA of BA/F3, which includes QC test results of each lot.
