Lifeline® normal Primary Human Lung Smooth Muscle Cells, when grown in VascuLife® SMC Smooth Muscle Cell Medium, provide an ideal culture model for the study of angiogenesis, atherosclerosis, diabetes or vascular/pulmonary biology.
- Primary Smooth Muscle Cells are directly cultured from human lung 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 cells can come from many donors without the accumulated mutations found in immortal cell lines.
Primary Lung Smooth Muscle Cells are cryopreserved after primary culture to ensure the highest viability, purity and plating efficiency.
Our Primary Human Lung 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.
- Lung smooth muscle cells can be grown without phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in VascuLife SMC Medium.
Primary Human 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. Lifeline offers these traditional supplements; however, they are not needed, or recommended, to achieve optimal cell performance in most research applications.
