Primary Cell Culture

Primary cells maintain physiological relevance because they are derived directly from living tissue and thus find increasing use in life science research and pharmaceutical drug. We are pleased to offer primary cells from Cell Applications Inc. (CAI).

CAI has honed the isolation, purification, subculture and growth of over 100 cell types. Every cell line comes with the promise of high purity, low passage, rigorous characterization and strict quality control. Optimized media and reagents provide optimal performance. All this ensures you can use these cells and their supporting products with confidence in your application.
