Lifeline® normal Human Epidermal Melanocytes neonatal (HEMn), when grown in Lifeline DermaLife® M, provide an ideal low serum culture model, without PMA or Cholera toxin, for the accurate testing of compounds and for use in the study of cancer or dermal biology.
Lifeline® Melanocytes are cryopreserved as primary cells to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency.
Our Human Epidermal Melanocytes are quality tested in DermaLife M Medium to ensure optimal reduced-serum growth and morphology over a period of at least 15 population doublings at rates greater than media supplemented with higher serum, PMA or Cholera toxin.
Lifeline® HEM are not exposed to antimicrobials or phenol red when cultured in Lifeline® DermaLife M melanocyte cell culture medium, an advantage since these supplements can cause cell stress and “masking effects” that may negatively impact experimental results. Lifeline® offers these traditional supplements, but they are not needed or recommended to achieve optimal cell performance in most research applications.
