In vitro test system

Details on the study design:
1/ Cell line
The THP-1 is an immortalized human monocytic leukemia cell line derived from an acute monocytic leukemia patient. The THP-1 cell line is obtained from ATCC (Ref: TIB-202, American Type Culture Collection, Manassas, USA) by the intermediate of LGC Standards (Molsheim, France).
The THP-1 cells are stored in a cryoprotective medium in a liquid nitrogen container. Cells will be grown using general culture procedures. They will be cultured in cRPMI medium and maintained in a humidified incubator set at 37°C, 5% CO2 and will not be allowed to exceed a cell density of 1 x 106 cells/mL or more than 30 passages.
The culture medium (cRPMI) will be composed of RPMI 1640 with 10% foetal bovine serum (FBS), 0.05 mM 2-mercaptoethanol and with penicillin (100 units/mL) and streptomycin (100 μg/mL).
During cell culturing, cell viability will be checked using trypan blue.

2/ Cell culture for testing
For testing, THP-1 cells are seeded at a density between 0.1 x 106 cells/mL and 0.2 x 106 cells/mL, and pre-cultured in culture flasks for a maximum of 72 hours. Cell will not let to exceed density of 1 x 106 cells/mL. On the day of testing, cells harvested from culture flasks are re-suspended with fresh culture medium at 2 x 106 cells/mL. Then, 500 μL of cells suspension are distributed into a 24-well flat-bottom plate (i.e. 1 x 106 cells/well).

3/ Reactivity check
Two weeks after thawing, a reactivity check is performed to qualify the cells of each working cell bank before testing. A reactivity check assay is performed by testing cell response after contact
with Lactic Acid (≥85% purity), DNCB (≥99% purity) and NiSO4 (≥99% purity) under an internal Citoxlab reference number. Results from reactivity check tests are compiled in Citoxlab France internal data, with negative and positive control data obtained during each test.
