The availability of a continuous supply of human kidney cultures is necessary for the efficient operation of virus screening and production programs. This report describes procedures for the processing of human kidneys and the freezing, storage, and culture of human kidney cells. The total cell yield, infant age, and postmortem age are listed for 89 cases. The results obtained from over 100 shipments of frozen cell suspensions are also listed. Results of this study indicate that safe and reliable repositories of frozen kidney cell suspensions can be successfully maintained for subsequent recovery and use as cell cultures.
