I have been growing Nalm-6 colonies in methocult for about a year now, the ratio of media is 1.6ml methocult, 1.2ml IMDM and 1.2ml FCS with or without drug depending on what i am doing.
Has anyone had any experience with maintaining the methocult for at least 3 weeks, frequently my methocult looks as though is has dessicated, i have water in the incubator and i also plate 2 wells with PBS to ensure still happens, any ideas or suggestions?
