Pinson mal media conditions since some substrates are rapidly exhausted and serum levels of 20% are undoubtedly excessive. Cell dissociation conditions and plating densities should also be standardized. Finally, at present, the replating method combined with high seeding densities and taking cells from the areas closest to the apex is the best way for selecting homogeneous myocyte population in culture.

Therefore, the use of proteolytic enzymes should be as short as possible, sufficient to permit the cleavage of the cellular connections with the extracellular matrix before causing serious harm to the cell itself.
