Human Hepatic Stellate Cells
CELL TYPE: Stellate cells
FORMAT: Cryopreserved following initial culture
Human Hepatic Stellate Cells (HSC) from Samsara are isolated from viable human liver by differential centrifugation and further purified using cell culture conditions. Cells are cultured immediately after isolation then cryopreserved at passage 0. Standard product characterization includes lot-specific post-thaw yield and viability as well as expression of Desmin, GFAP, α-SMA, TE-7 and CD31 by immunocytochemistry (ICC). Comprehensive donor history report includes medical history and board-certified pathologist assessment of NAFLD activity score (NAS) and Batts-Ludwig fibrosis score. All livers come from consented donors and test negative for HIV I/II, HBV, HCV and Syphilis prior to acceptance.
PASSAGE NUMBER: p0
