Though macrophages were first described by Elie Metchnikoff in 1882, there are still plenty of mysteries associated with these versatile immune cells. We field many questions from curious scientists wanting to learn more about macrophages:

What Are the Best Methods for Culturing These Cells?

What’s the best culture medium?  Do you need to add serum?

How much do they grow?

My macrophages won’t come off the plastic — what do I do now?


How Do You Make M1 and M2 Macrophages from Monocytes?

There is more than one way to make an M1 macrophage.


What’s the Difference Between M1 and M2 Anyway?

We’ll review the differences in gene expression and cytokine production.  

On Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 11:00am PT (2:00pm ET), we are presenting a webinar, hosted by Bitesize Bio, discussing best practices for working with mouse and human macrophages as well as the data that you can expect to collect based on the experimental conditions.

Contact us if you have questions before the webinar. We hope to see you there!
