Creative Bioarray's normal Human Lung Fibroblasts provide an ideal cell system to establish serum free human feeder layers for human embryonic stem cell cultures or as a model to study wound healing, toxicology or basic cell biology.
HDFn are cryopreserved as primary cells. Cells are isolated from neonatal human foreskin and expanded in culture vessels once before cryopreservation.
HDFa are cryopreserved as primary cells. Cells are isolated from adult human skin and expanded in culture vessels once before cryopreservation.
Human Lung Fibroblasts are cryopreserved as secondary cells cells are isolated from human lungs and expanded in culture vessels twice before cryopreservation.
Fibroblasts can be grown in serum-free, animal protein-free, phenol red-free, and antimicrobial free conditions when cultured in FibroLife Serum-Free Medium.
Fibroblasts are extensively tested to meet quality standards and exhibit optimal performance.
Creative Bioarray's Fibroblasts are suitable for use as feeder layers as xeno-free or non-xeno free cultures for human embryonic stem cells and other cell culture applications requiring feeder layers.
Human Primary Lung Fibroblasts are tested for negative expression of von Willebrand Factor Expression/Factor VIII, cytokeratin 18, and alpha smooth muscle actin. Human Primary Lung Fibroblasts are negative for bacteria, yeast, fungi and mycoplasma. Cells can be expanded for 3-5 passages at a split ratio of 1:2 or 1:3 under the cell culture conditions specified by Creative Bioarray. Repeated freezing and thawing of cells is not recommended.
Storage and Shipping
We ship frozen cells on dry ice. On receipt, immediately transfer frozen cells to liquid nitrogen (-180 °C) until ready for experimental use. Live cell shipment is also available on request.
Never can primary cells be kept at -20 °C.
Human Primary Lung Fibroblasts can be used for the assay of cell-cell interaction, adhesion, PCR, Western blot, immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescent flow cytometry, or generating cell derivatives for desired research applications.
