Continuous cell lines

Postby gene26 » Jun 02 2017 11:47 am

Hybridomas are fused with myelomas and therefore immortal? although they exhibit ploidy they somehow (~1%) manage to survive. Eventually they reach senescence and perish after 30-40 cell divisions. So they are not immortal and how do we monitor how many times a single cell has divided before it dies.

Any labeling methods that are employed for this purpose?
