Accutase is a cell detachment solution made of proteolytic and collagenolytic enzymes. It has been developed to meet the most demanding requirements for gentle and effective detachment of adherent cells. It is useful for the routine detachment of cells from standard tissue culture plasticware and adhesion-coated plasticware. The advantage of Accutase over the traditional Trypsin/EDTA treatment is that it is less damaging to cells, thus leading to increased viability. Further, no inactivation of the enzymes by inhibitors or serum is required. The Accutase solution does not contain mammalian or bacteria-derived products.
