Custom Primary Cell Isolation Services

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):

  • Skin
  • Heart
  • Liver
  • Kidney
  • Bone
  • 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.
