Scientific resources

HDFas primary human dermal fibroblasts (single donor) are provided cryopreserved in the fully defined CRYO-Defined culture medium to maximize recovery after thawing.

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

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.
