Product Description

Lifeline® Primary Normal Human Dermal Fibroblasts-Neonatal, Xeno-Free (HDFn-XF), when grown in FibroLife® Xeno-Free Complete Medium, provide an ideal xeno-free culture system to establish xeno-free human feeder layers for human pluripotent stem cell cultures or as a model to study wound healing, toxicology or basic cell biology. They have not been exposed to any non-human or animal material.

  • Primary Neonatal Skin 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.
  • Your research outcomes will be more representative of the general population: Primary Neonatal Skin Fibroblasts can come from many donors.

Primary Neonatal Dermal Fibroblasts are cryopreserved after primary culture to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency. Our HDFn-XF are quality tested in FibroLife Xeno-Free Complete Medium to ensure optimal growth over a period of at least 15 population doublings at rates equal to or greater than other commercially available media containing non-human proteins or supplements.

Lifeline Primary Fibroblasts are not exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in FibroLife Xeno-Free Complete Medium, an advantage since these supplements can cause cell stress and ” masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results.

Dermal Fibroblasts Xeno Free Features

500,000 cells per vial

Neonatal dermal fibroblasts are tested for:

  • Proliferation and morphology:  Normal cell appearance for 15 population doublings
  • Cell viability:  Minimum 70% viability when thawed from cryopreservation
  • Sterility:  Negative for mycoplasma.  Negative for bacterial and fungal growth
  • Virus:  Negative for HIV-1, HIV-2, HBV, and HCV by PCR

Lifeline documents that all materials used in the manufacture of products which are labeled “Xeno-Free” have never come into contact with material of animal (non-human) origin and are not of animal (non-human) origin.
