Lifeline® normal Human Renal Medullary Epithelial Cells, when grown in Lifeline® RenaLife™ Medium, provide an ideal low-serum culture model for the study of renal function, fibrosis, inflammation, metabolism, nephrotoxicity or cancer. Additionally, our normal human renal cells can be used for drug development or screening.
Lifeline® Renal Medullary Epithelial Cells are cryopreserved as primary cells to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency.
- The cells are isolated from human kidney tissue and expanded in culture vessels once before cryopreservation.
Our Renal Epithelial Cells are quality tested in RenaLife™ Medium to ensure optimal reduced-serum growth over a period of at least 15 population doublings at rates equal to or greater than serum-supplemented medium.
Lifeline® Renal Epithelial Cells are not exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in RenaLife™ 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.
