Human Primary IPF Lung Fibroblasts; LF-HD-087 #15-1305 Datasheet


This primary cell isolate was prepared from tissue obtained with full ethical permission. Tissue was dissected and dissociated by proteolytic digestion. A fibroblast population was isolated using FSP-1 immunomagnetic selection and propagated in customised fibroblast culture medium. Cells were banked, cryopreserved and stored at -150oC. Cell population analysis was performed by fluorescence-activated flow cytometry.
