Primary Human Keratinocytes

Primary normal human keratinocytes include: oral keratinocytes, adult keratinocytes, and neonatal keratinocytes.

These primary human keratinocytes are directly cultured from their source organ tissue: adult and neonatal keratinocytes from the epidermis, and oral keratinocytes from gingiva.

  • Your experimental outcomes will be true: Primary keratinocytes have not been modified in any way. This helps avoid altering the outcome of your experiments.
  • Your research outcomes will be more representative of the general population: Primary keratinocytes can come from many donors. Having a variety of primary keratinocytes from many different donors (young, old, male, female, different ethnicities, etc.) is especially useful when carrying out early drug testing. This helps ensure that the drug is effective for everyone.
  • Your experimental results won’t be negatively impacted: Lifeline keratinocytes have not been exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red, components which can cause cell stress and “masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results.
