Human Primary Kidney Fibroblasts; KF-HN-051 #12-1109F Datasheet


The primary cell isolate was prepared from human tissue obtained with full ethical permission. Tissue was mechanically dissociated into small explants which were cultured under conditions optimized for primary kidney fibroblast cells. Fibroblasts were recovered in cells out-growing from the explants. A fibroblast population was isolated using FSP-1 immuno-magnetic selection. The population was expanded, banked, and cryopreserved under liquid nitrogen. The cell population was analysed by fluorescence-activated flow cytometry.
