Regular price $735.00

Primary Human Retinal Microvascular Endothelial Cells (ACBRI 181) are initiated by elutriation of dispase dissociated normal human retina tissue.

HRMEC (ACBRI 181) 48 hours after plating

Cell Initiation

These cells were originated using Cell Systems Complete Serum-Free Medium (SF-4Z0-500), and subsequently grown and passaged in Cell Systems Complete Medium (4Z0-500). They are available at Passage 3 [< 12 cumulative population doublings] cryopreserved in Cell Systems Cell Freezing Medium™ (4Z0-705). This vial will initiate a Passage 4 cell culture in a 75cm2 flask. In addition to cryopreserved vials, these cells also are available in 25cm2 and 75cm2 proliferating cell culture flasks (US domestic market only).

Companion Products

Each vial of cells is shipped with Bac-Off® (antibiotic) and CultureBoost™ (animal derived growth factors) or CultureBoost-R™ (human recombinant growth factors) at no additional cost.

These cells are qualified for use with:
