Human Primary Dermal Fibroblasts; DF-HN-184 #14-1906 Datasheet


This primary cell isolate was prepared from human tissue obtained with full ethical permission. Skin tissue was dissected to obtain explants of dermis which were seeded into tissue culture treated dishes. Cell outgrowth from explanted tissue was promoted using customised medium optimised for primary human dermal fibroblast cells. A fibroblast population was isolated using FSP-1 immuno-magnetic selection. Propagated cells were banked and cryopreserved under liquid nitrogen. The cell population was analysed by fluorescence-activated flow cytometry.
