Lifeline® normal Human Renal Cortical Epithelial Cells provide an ideal cell system to study renal function, fibrosis, inflammation, metabolism, nephrotoxicity or cancer. Additionally, our normal human renal cells can be used for drug development or screening.
Lifeline® Renal Cortical Epithelial Cells are cryopreserved as primary cells to ensure the highest purity, viability and plating efficiency.
Primary renal cells have been isolated from human kidney tissue, plated onto culture vessels, expanded once, harvested and cryopreserved.
Our Renal Epithelial Cells are quality tested in RenaLife™ Medium to ensure optimal reduced-serum growth and maintenance of morphology over a period of at least 15 population doublings at rates equal to or greater than serum-supplemented medium.
Renal Cortical Epithelial Cells can be grown in a 0.5% serum medium without phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in RenaLife™ Medium.
Lifeline® normal Human Renal Cortical Epithelial Cells are not exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in Lifeline® RenaLife™ medium, an advantage since these supplements can cause cell stress and “masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results.
