Human Primary Colon Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts; CF-HC-106 #12-0427C Datasheet


The primary cell isolate was prepared from human tissue obtained with full ethical permission. Tissue was dissected and treated with collagenase and chelation. A colon cancer associated fibroblast population (CAF) was isolated using FSP-1 selection and the resulting cells were propagated in customized colon fibroblast medium. Cells were banked and cryopreserved under liquid nitrogen. The cell population was analysed by fluorescence-activated flow cytometry.
