- Selection. Multiple lots available with diverse origins.
- Quality. Traceable, viable, reliable.
- Support. Culture and cryopreservation protocols provided with each lot.
- Comprehensive. Access to a full spectrum of companion products, including tissue sections, nucleic acids, & gene expression data.
Choose wisely. Choose Samsara.
PRIMARY HUMAN HEPATIC STELLATE CELLS
Hepatic stellate cells are a specific subpopulation of non-parenchymal cells found in the liver. They are responsible for mediating a broad spectrum of functions within the liver microenvironment and thus play significant roles in both homeostasis and pathogenesis. Samsara’s human hepatic stellate cells (hHSCs) are available as cryopreserved stock that can be thawed and cultured for use alone or in combination with other cell types to study a wide variety of biological and physiological phenomena relevant to liver function and disease. Each starter vial can be used directly or propagated in vitro for further use.
PRIMARY HUMAN HEPATOCYTES
Hepatocytes, the parenchymal cells of the liver, are responsible for xenobiotic metabolism and the production and/or regulation of a myriad of proteins (clotting factors, enzymes, serum proteins, etc.) that are absolutely required for life. Thus, they are the most widely used liver cell type in a vast array of in vitro and in vivo applications. Samsara’s primary human hepatocytes are cryopreserved immediately after isolation, characterized with respect to post-thaw viability and functionality, and will soon be distributed through QPS Hepatic Biosciences.
