Epithelix is offering primary Human Airway Epithelial Cells, passage 1, isolated from biopsies :
- Nasal (hAECN)
- Tracheal (hAECT)
- Bronchial (hAECB)
hAECB, hAECT and hAECN are commonly used for in vitro studies related with pulmonary diseases and chemical testing. They are now a standard for research on asthma, COPD, cancer, cystic fibrosis, bacterial and viral infections. These cells are also a useful tool for the screening, testing and validation of drugs candidates.
Epithelial cells can be available from different pathologies :
- Allergic Rhinitis
- Cystic Fibrosis
Using an in-house technology and know-how, our cells have the following features:
- A fast growth rate
- Very good proliferation and differentiation capacities
- An improved and uniform morphology
- Very good reproducibility
Description and Maintenance
Cells are supplied in a cryogenic vial containing more than 1'000'000 viable cells in a volume of 1 mL of freezing medium. The vials with cryo-conserved cells will be shipped on dry-ice. Upon arrival, the cells must be taken out and transferred to a storage facility with liquid nitrogen (-196 °C).
General Media Requirements
The culture of these cells is best performed using Epithelix Culture Media.
These media are serum free, chemically defined, and ready-to-use.
Available in 500 mL format.
All batches are performance-assayed and tested negative for HIV-1, mycoplasma, hepatitis-B, hepatitis-C, bacteria, yeast and fungi.
