Product Description

Lifeline® normal Human Primary Renal Mixed Epithelial Cells, when grown in RenaLife™ Renal Epithelial 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 Primary 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 Mixed Epithelial Cells are cryopreserved as primary cells to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency.

  • Primary Renal Epithelial Cells have been isolated from human kidney tissue, plated onto culture vessels, expanded once, harvested and cryopreserved.
  • Primary Renal Cells 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.
  • Variety of donors means Primary Renal Cells without the accumulated mutations of immortal cell lines.

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.

  • Renal Mixed Epithelial Cells can be grown in a 0.5% serum medium without phenol red or antimicrobials when cultured in RenaLife Medium.

Lifeline Renal Mixed 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.
