HCEP

CnT-Corneal Epithelium Progenitors, Adult, Single Donor

Normal human corneal epithelial progenitor cells, cryo-preserved at early passage.

Catalog HCEP
Content Vial containing 0.5 million viable cells, frozen

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Pre-equilibrated in CELLnTEC base chemistry
  • High-quality cells
  • Supplied in fully-defined cryopreservation medium to maximize recovery after thawing

Description

HCEP primary human corneal cells growing in fully defined CnT-PR medium benefit from the presence of PCT factors that aid retention of proliferative progenitors and reduce differentiation.

HANDLING INSTRUCTION: This material is 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

HCEP primary human corneal cells growing in fully defined CnT-PR medium benefit from the presence of PCT factors that aid retention of proliferative progenitors and reduce differentiation.

The HCEP cells are provided cryopreserved in the fully defined CRYO-Defined culture medium to maximize recovery after thawing.

The cultures undergo a range of QC tests in our lab before being released for sale and are also covered by our longevity guarantee. Please see the datasheet for details.

HCEP cells may also be grown in CnT-57 medium if desired. This low-BPE medium can improve attachment and proliferation on standard cell culture plastic for some cell lots. Please enquire for details.

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