HEK 293 Human Embryonic Kidney Cell Line
It's not a toomah!

I'll be honest, between questionably sterile environments, unknown passage count, shipping, and continual antibiotics, I thought there was a good chance these cells would die perhaps even before making it into my hands. I was wrong. Care went into coordinating the time and speed of shipping (thanks, Peter!). Most of the cells arrived with stressed morphology but returned to health within a night or two of incubation. This is my first experience with the HEK293 line, for what it's worth.
