Human Primary Lung Cancer Fibroblasts; LF-HC-088 #17-0112 Datasheet


This primary cell isolate was prepared from tissue obtained with full ethical permission. Lung tumour 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 and cryopreserved under -150oC. Cell population analysis was performed by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS).
