Addition of the CnT-IsoBoost supplement to CnT-PR medium for the first 3 days after isolation more than doubles the isolation efficiency.
Isolation is a considerable stress for primary cells, in which the physical detachment and loss of cohesion results in significant loss of viability and reduced attachment.
The new IsoBoost supplement (CnT-ISO-50) is able to significantly boost the isolation efficiency of primary human epithelial cells by protecting them against stress, and improving viability and attachment rates.
In tests with the CnT-PR medium (left), more than twice as many population doublings were achieved in the first 7 days of culture when the CnT-ISO-50 supplement was added during the first 3 days of culture. This resulted in 5x more cells than in standard medium alone:
IsoBoost delivers 5x more cells on day 7 post isolation.

A sterile, 1000 x ready-to-use concentrate which is added to the culture medium for the first 3 days of culture immediately after isolation. Significantly improves viability and attachment of primary human cells.
