Lifeline® Normal Human Bronchial Tracheal Smooth Muscle Cells (HBTSMC), when grown in Lifeline® VascuLife® SMC Medium, provide an ideal low serum (5%) culture model for the study of pulmonary biology.
Human Bronchial/Tracheal Smooth Muscle Cells have been isolated from human bronchi and trachea and cryopreserved as primary cells.
- Primary cells are cells that have been isolated from tissue, plated onto culture vessels, expanded, harvested and cryopreserved.
Our Human Smooth Muscle Cells 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.
- Bronchial/Tracheal Smooth Muscle Cells can be grown without phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in VascuLife® SMC Medium.
Lifeline® human smooth muscle cells are not exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in VascuLife® SMC Medium
