Human Primary Pulmonary Artery Fibroblasts; AF-HN-138 #12-1611 Datasheet


This primary cell isolate was prepared from human tissue obtained with full ethical permission. Human pulmonary artery was treated enzymatically and the collected cells were characterized by flow cytometric analysis of cell markers. Fibroblasts were further selected using FSP-1 labelled immuno-magnetic beads and the harvested fibroblast cell population was grown in medium optimized for primary human pulmonary arterial fibroblasts. Cells were banked by cryopreservation under liquid nitrogen.
