Has anyone ever tried to (or know of anyone else who has tried to) 
establish schisto cell lines?

(Background - trying to find an easier way of producing large 
numbers of chromosome spreads for physical mapping by F.I.S.H. for the 
schisto genome project than by dissecting sporocysts out of snails!)

Thanks in advance
