Pericytes are multipotent mesenchymal-like cells found in association with small
blood vessel walls. They are important for angiogenesis, the structural integrity of the microvasculature, and blood flow regulation. However, they can also develop into malignant tumors called hemangiopericytomas.
To date, these cells have demonstrated the ability to differentiate into adipocytes, osteoblasts, fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, and phagocytes (macro -phages).
Creative Bioarray offers placenta derived Pericytes produced at Creative Bioarray's cell cul -ture facility from normal human tissues.
Shortly after isolation, all Pericytes are cryopreserved at passage 2 (P2) using Creative Bioarray's proprietary, serum-free freezing medium, Cryo-SFM. Each cryo vial contains more than 500,000 viable cells after thawing.
Proliferating cell cultures are made from 500,000 cryopreserved cells that have been thawed and cultured for three days at Creative Bioarray.
