I'm having a bit of a problem that I hope someone might be able to help
me with. I'm trying to harvest peritoneal macrophages from deer mice,
but the cells that I get do not look like macrophages because they do
not adhere to tissue culture plates. My protocol is to inject deer mice
and BALB/c with 1.5 ml of 3% thioglycolate then harvest 3-5 days later.
The BALB/c clearly give us macrophages, but the deer mice do not. Any
suggestions for alternative macrophage harvesting?
