Lifeline® Normal Human Prostate Epithelial Cells (HPrEC), when grown in Lifeline ProstaLifeTM Medium, provides an ideal serum-free culture model, without retinoic acid, for the study of prostate cells.
Common uses for Prostate Epithelial Cells are studies of hormonal regulation of the prostate, regulation and control of the secretory function of prostate cells and as a control for the study of prostate cancer.
Lifeline® Human Prostate Epithelial Cells are plated and expanded in culture vessels twice before being harvested for cryopreservation to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency.
Our HPrEC are quality tested in ProstaLifeTM Medium to ensure optimal serum-free growth over a period of at least 15 population doublings at rates equal to or greater than serum-supplemented media.
Lifeline® Human Prostate Epithelial Cells are not exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in ProstaLifeTM medium, an advantage since these supplements can cause cell stress and “masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results.
