Time lapse series of cell growth and division in cultured hTERT-RPE1 cells (telomerase immortalized human retinal pigment epithelium) using phase contrast optics. A movie created from this time series is grouped with it in the Cell Image Library.
Biological Process: Mitosis, Cell proliferation
Cells were cultured on glass coverslips in 10% FBS, DMEM/F12 medium plus glutamine, HEPES, penicillin and streptomycin and examined with a Leica DMIRE2 microscope with Leica 40x HCX PL APO NA 1.25 objective lens. images were captured at 3 minute intervals with a Hamamatsu ORCA-ER2 CCD camera using Simple PCI 18.104.22.168 software.
