Lifeline® normal Human Epidermal Keratinocytes (HEK), when grown in Lifeline® DermaLife K Medium, provide an ideal serum-free culture model, for the study of wound healing, toxicology or epithelial biology.
When in need of multiple keratinocyte cell lots, our Epidermal Keratinocyte 10-donor pool offers a wide range of donor demographics for research at an economical price.
Lifeline® Epidermal Keratinocytes can be grown without serum, phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in DermaLife medium.
All Lifeline® 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.
Our HEK 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 result.
Epidermal Keratinocytes can be grown without serum, phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in DermaLife medium.
