Lifeline® Normal Human Epidermal Keratinocytes adult (HEKa), when grown in Lifeline® DermaLife K Medium, provides an ideal serum-free culture model, for the study of wound healing, toxicology or epithelial biology.
Lifeline® Epidermal Keratinocytes are cryopreserved as primary cells to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency. The cells are isolated from adult human skin and expanded once in culture vessels before cryopreservation.
Our Adult Epidermal Keratinocytes are quality tested in DermaLife K Medium to ensure optimal serum-free growth over a period of at least 15 population doublings at rates equal to or greater than serum-supplemented medium.
Lifeline® Epidermal Keratinocytes need not be exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in DermaLife medium, an advantage since these supplements can cause cell stress and “masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results. can be grown without serum, phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in DermaLife medium.
Adult Epidermal Keratinocytes can be grown without serum, phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in DermaLife medium.
