Human Primary IPF Lung Fibroblasts; LF-HD-087 #15-0705 Datasheet


This primary cell isolate was prepared from human tissue obtained with full ethical permission. Tissue was dissected and dissociated by proteolytic digestion. A fibroblast population was isolated using FSP-1 immuno-magnetic selection and propagated in customised fibroblast culture medium. Cells were banked by cryopreservation under liquid nitrogen. The cell population was analysed by fluorescence-activated flow cytometry.
