The stemline chromosome number is hypotriploid with the 2S
component occurring at 1.4%. Approximately 20 markers were
common to most S metaphases, of which i (1p), t(12;?) and
t(18;?) were generally paired; t(6t?) had an HSR segment of q
arm, and M7 had two secondary constrictions. Normal
chromosomes 1, 13, 15 and 17 were absent, and the X was
disomic. No Y chromosome was detected in the QM stained
The patient had received prior therapy with cytoxan,
bleomycin and adriamycin.

Remove and discard culture medium.
Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin-
0.53 mM EDTA solution to remove all traces of serum that
contains trypsin inhibitor.
Add 2.0 to 3.0 ml of Trypsin-EDTA solution to flask and
observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer
is dispersed (usually within 5 to 15 minutes). Note: To
avoid clumping do not agitate the cells by hitting or
shaking the flask while waiting for the cells to detach.
Cells that are difficult to detach may be placed at 37°C to
