CnT-FT-CELLS

CnT-Full Thickness Primary Cell Value Pack

Contains both HPEK primary keratinocytes and HDF primary fibroblasts, that have been used successfully with the CnT-PR-F and CnT-PR-FTAL5 media to establish fully thickness skin models.

Catalog CnT-FT-CELLS
Content HPEKp & HDFp cells

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Cost effective and convenient kit, contains all required cells for full thickness models
  • Cells compatible to full thickness kit components, ensuring reliable cell behaviour and modelling accuracy

Description

A value pack containing two cell vials (i) Normal human epidermal keratinocyte progenitor cells (#HPEKp), isolated from juvenile donor skin, and (ii) normal human dermal fibroblasts (#HDFp), isolated from juvenile skin.

Note: The cells are of human origin and should therefore be handled as hazardous. Although it has been tested negative for HIV 1, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, treat this material as potentially infectious, and use appropriate biocontainment, protective equipment and other precautions to prevent accidental exposure.

Scientific resources

The establishment of full-thickness skin models (3D co-culture) requires primary human keratinocytes and fibroblasts.

The Full Thickness Primary Cell Value Pack (#CnT-FT-CELLS) contains both HPEK primary keratinocytes and HDF primary fibroblasts, that have been used successfully with the CnT-PR-F and CnT-PR-FTAL5 media to establish fully thickness skin models.

Prior to seeding for the establishment of FT models, the cells should be expanded for 1-2 passages in the following media:

HPEK keratinocytes: CnT-PR medium
HDF fibroblasts: CnT-PR-F medium

The thawing, seeding, and passaging protocols are particularly important for optimal cell growth. Please visit our Protocols Page for our recommendations.
