Human Skin Cells (Dermal Fibroblasts) (MPS)

500,000 cells/vial

Catalog Number ASE-5042
Quantity 5.0 x 105 cells/mL

Product Information
Human fibroblasts are derived from cultured skin explants. These fibroblasts are from a single donor. Fibroblasts enable researchers to study skin diseases such as dermatitis, wound healing, and other diseases that are expressed in fibroblasts. In addition, they may be used to study the development of skin and production of inducible pluripotent stem cells to study disease models.
These fibroblasts are isolated from an individual who has been clinically diagnosed with mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS), a group of metabolic disorders caused by the absence or malfunctioning of lysosomal enzymes needed to break down glycosaminoglycans, long chains of sugar carbohydrates that help to build bone, cartilage, tendons, corneas, skin, and connective tissue.
Origin Human
Development Period Postnatal
Disease State Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS)


Quality Control All cell processing is validated under strict protocols with IRB approval. All cells are guaranteed to meet or exceed customer’s expectations when handled according to instructions.
