Product Description

Lifeline® Primary Vas Deferens Fibroblasts, when grown in FibroLife S2 fibroblast culture medium, provide an excellent in vitro model  for the study of male reproductive biology.  Primary Vas Defens Fibroblasts can be used as normal controls for cancer cell studies and are also ideal for the study of:

  • androgen receptors
  • reproductive cell morphogenesis
  • fibrosis of the vas deferens
  • other male urogenital disease states including male infertility
  • toxicity and drug discovery

Primary Vas Deferens Fibroblasts are directly cultured from their source organ tissue and have not been modified in any way. This helps avoid altering the outcome of your experiments.

And Primary Fibroblasts can come from many donors, so your research outcomes will be more representative of the general population,

Primary Vas Deferens Fibroblasts are plated and expanded in culture vessels twice before being harvested for cryopreservation to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency. Vas Deferens Fibroblast Cells are cultured in FibroLife S2 Medium.

Lifeline cells need not be exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in Lifeline culture media.  That’s an advantage as these supplements can cause cell stress and “masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results.

500,000 cells per vial

Primary Human Vas Deferens Fibroblasts are tested for:

  • Proliferation:  Population growth at various densities
  • Cell Viability:   70% or greater when thawed from cryopreservation
  • Morphology:  Normal cell appearance for 15 population doublings
  • Sterility Testing:  Negative for mycoplasma. Negative for bacterial and fungal growth.
  • Virus Testing:  Negative for HIV-1, HIV-2, HBV, and HCV by PCR
