Human Kupffer Cells


SPECIES:   Human

TISSUE:   Liver

CELL TYPE:   Kupffer cells

FORMAT:   Cryopreserved following isolation

Human Kupffer Cells (KC) from Samsara are isolated from viable human liver and cryopreserved immediately after purification by immunoselection. Isolated KCs mount a cytokine response to pro-inflammatory stimulus, lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Standard product characterization includes lot-specific post-thaw yield and viability as well as cytokine response from LPS induction at 24 and 72 hours. 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.

VOLUME:   1.0 mL per vial

POST-THAW YIELD:   > 0.5 x 106 cells per vial

CELL SIZE RANGE:   8 – 15 microns

DONOR AVAILABILITY:   Healthy or diseased, single donor

Cell viability and yield determined by image cytometry AO/PI dual staining

Post-thaw plating to confirm characteristic morphology

Cell functionality measured by cytokine response to LPS stimulation

SHIPPING CONDITION:   Dry ice, Liquid nitrogen dry vapor shipper upon request


LONG-TERM STORAGE (> 3 DAYS):   Liquid nitrogen vapor phase
