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 cells can be used in high throughput assays, such as cytotoxicity and drug screening assays. Customers that use our renal cells for these types of assays report high reproducibility with coefficients of variability below 10% (usually 4-8%).
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.
Quality Testing for Guaranteed Consistency and Reproducible Results
