Rat Pancreatic Islets from Creative Bioarray are isolated from the pancreas of Sprague–Dawley rat using Collagenase P and purified using Ficoll density gradient.
Rat Pancreatic Islets are tested for their viability using FDA/PI, purity using Dithizone staining, static insulin secretion in response to 14 mM glucose. Upon request, dynamic insulin secretion and calcium imaging in response to glucose and other stimulators can be performed.
