Human smooth muscle cells include: airway, aortic, bladder, coronary artery, prostate, pulmonary artery, and uterine.
Lifeline® normal Human Smooth Muscle Cells (HSMC), when grown in Lifeline® VascuLife® SMC Medium, provide an ideal low serum (5%) culture model for the study of angiogenesis, atherosclerosis, diabetes or vascular/pulmonary biology.
Smooth muscle cells are cryopreserved as primary or secondary cells to ensure the highest viability, purity and plating efficiency. Our HSMC are quality tested in VascuLife® SMC Medium and demonstrate optimal low serum growth over a period of at least 15 population doublings at rates equal to or greater than other serum-supplemented media.
Lifeline® smooth muscle cells are not exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in VascuLife® SMC Medium, an advantage since these supplements can cause cell stress and “masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results.
