Human Astroglia and Schwann Cells-BBB Model

Broadening our Capabilities

At the core of our solutions are many options for primary human cells. We are especially pleased that we have growing capabilities to provide new cells to researchers studying autoimmune neuro-degenerative diseases like ALS and MS with the addition of:
Schwann Cells
Human Schwann Cells (HSwC) are isolated from human spinal nerve. HSwC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen. Each vial contains >5 x 10^5 cells in 1 ml volume. HSwC are characterized by immunofluorescence with antibodies specific to S100, GFAP, and CD90. HSwC are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi. HSwC can to further expand for 10 population doublings in our Schwann Growth medium (cat # SGM001).
Human Astrocytes
 Human Brain Astrocytes cultured with AlphaBioCoat.
Human Blood Brain Barrier Model
I will continue to post updates here.
