Product Description

Lifeline® Normal Human Primary Prostate Epithelial Cells (HPrEC), when grown in ProstaLifeTM Prostate Epithelial Medium, provide an ideal serum-free and retinoic acid-free culture system for the study of the prostate epithelium.

Primary Prostate Epithelial Cells can be used to generate prostate organoids in three-dimensional culture conditions, to provide a normal control in prostate cancer research, to identify prostate cancer biomarketers, and to study hormonal regulation of the prostate epithelium.

  • Primary Prostate Cells are directly cultured from their source organ 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 of immortal cell lines.

Lifeline Human Prostate Epithelial Cells are cryopreserved after being plated and expanded in culture vessels twice to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency.

Our HPrEC are quality tested in ProstaLife Medium to ensure optimal serum-free growth over a period of at least 15 population doublings at rates equal to or greater than serum-supplemented media.

Lifeline Human Prostate Epithelial Cells are not exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in ProstaLife medium, an advantage since these supplements can cause cell stress and “masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results.
