Human Primary Ovarian Cancer Cells; OV-HC-020 #16-0508 Datasheet


This primary cell isolate was prepared from ovarian cancer tissue obtained with full ethical permission. Ovarian cancer tissue was dissociated by enzymatic digestion and cells were harvested and washed by conventional filtration and centrifugation. Cells were grown in culture using medium optimized for propagation of primary ovarian epithelial cells, and were banked and cryopreserved under -150oC. Cell population analysis was performed by fluorescence-activated flow cytometry.
