A primary cell culture from hepatopancreas of the common fresh water crab, Paratelphusa hydrodromus was developed using serum free medium. The cells were grown at 25ºC in L-15 medium with glutamine and antibiotics. The cells of the hepatopancreas were round and showed a strong tendency to attach to the surface of the flask. The cells became confluent after 84 hours of post seeding and seen attached to the surface of the flask.
