HDFs primary human dermal fibroblasts (single donor) deliver strong growth and extended longevity due to their juvenile origin, and the strong proliferative signals provided by the CnT-PR-F medium.
The HDF fibroblasts are provided cryopreserved in the fully defind CRYO-Defined culture medium, to maximise 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.
The thawing, seeding and passaging protocols are particularly important for optimal cell growth. Please visit our Protocols Page for our recommendations.
Please visit our publications database and search by tissue type to obtain a range of articles that have used CELLnTEC primary cells and media in this specific field.
