Lifeline® Normal Human Bladder Smooth Muscle Cells (HBSMC), when grown in Lifeline® VascuLife® SMC Medium, provide an ideal low serum (5%) culture model for the study of angiogenesis, atherosclerosis, diabetes or vascular/pulmonary biology.
Lifeline® Bladder Smooth Muscle Cells are cryopreserved as primary cells to ensure the highest viability, purity and plating efficiency.
- Cells 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.
Lifeline® bladder 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.
- Bladder smooth muscle cells can be grown without phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in VascuLife® SMC Medium.
