The dissociation solution is expensive and you may obtain the same results
with o.01M PBS  with 60 mM EDTA. The EDTA is the active ingredient. It
chelates divalent cations that aid in attachment allowing the cells to break
loose without cellular damage.

Dear Flowers
Chinnaswamy has kindly forwarded the details of the cell dissociation buffer
from GIBCO to me as another alternative to harvest macrophages. His message
is below.
Cheers
Dee

Ms. Dee: here are the specs for the GIBCO cell dissociation buffer; please
forward to appropriate people...

Cat NO: 13150-016
Component NO: 1096537
cell dis buf, enzyme free, HBSS based propritary formual for detaching cells
from plastic surfacces;cells can thne be tested for flow, ligand binding,
immunohstochemistry etc
Make: GIBCO BRL

I have tested such cells for mannose receptor and it works just fine; I
strongly recommend it for macrophage studies.
