Custom Primary Cell Isolation Service
Applied StemCell can isolate primary cells from fresh tissues, including from biopsy samples.
Primary cells differ from immortalized cell lines because they have a limited population doubling time. However, primary cells retain the physiological properties of the tissue of origin and mimic in vivo conditions. Primary cells are ideal cell models for a variety of research, including cell biology/physiology, disease mechanisms, drug screening and therapeutic development. Applied StemCell can isolate a specific cell type from tissues including (but not limited to):
- Skeletal Muscle
- Brain or other nervous tissue
We first isolate the cell-type-of interest using magnetic bead technology. Cells are then frozen in liquid nitrogen for long-term storage. Thawed cells are subject to flow cytometry and plated for immunocytochemistry for further characterization. We also provide recommended growth and handling conditions for you with each purchase.
