Actually, we have two types of Human Cardiomyocytes: tissue-derived and iPSC-derived. The tissue-derived cardiomyocytes are isolated from normal human ventricle tissue of the adult heart. They are guaranteed for 15 population doublings with a doubling time of 34.5h. The cells are cryopreserved at P2, so they'll be P3 when you start culture them. These cardiomyocytes don't beat in the culture. The iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes can be maintained in culture for an extended duration. We have cultured the cells for 1 year and the cells still maintain the beating phenotype and gene expression patterns.
We can provide two kinds of human cardiomyocytes, tissue-derived and iPSC-derived. However, we haven't tested them for beta 1 adrenergic receptor expression.
The tissue-derived cardiomyocytes are isolated from normal human ventricle tissue of the adult heart.
Since the cells are isolated from donated tissues and the amount of cells from a single donor is limited, we run out of the cells from the same donor every now and then. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that the cells you order each time will from the same donor. We might be able to reserve 1 or 2 vials for you when you place your first order, but the reservation can stay valid for a month or two.If it's necessary for you to use cardiomyocytes continuously from the same origin, I would like to recommend to you our cardiomyocytes derived from iPS cells. These cells are quite stable and they are able to maintain their beating morphology if cultured with our optimized media.
