Upon receipt, immediately transfer each cryovial into the vapor phase of a liquid nitrogen storage tank. Cells are viable for at least 2 years when stored under these conditions.
Proliferating Normal Human Tracheal Epithelial Cells- P0 (NhTE-P0) are isolated from the trachea of healthy human donors but do not contain epithelial cells from the primary bronchus. Each vial of the Proliferating NhTE-P0 cells contains the complete tracheal cell composition consisting of differentiated cells like ciliated and mucin producing cells as well as basal progenitor cells.
Proliferating NhTE-P0 cells have been characterized and Air/Liquid Interface culture (ALI) validated by immunofluorescence using protein markers for Cilia (acetylated tubulin), mucin (MUC5AC), tight junctions (Zonula Occludens-1), and basal cells (cytokeratin-5).
The NhTE-P0 cells are guaranteed to have minimum of at least 30 population doublings from passage number zero (P0) following the instructions and conditions provided by Novabiosis.
Proliferating NhTE-P0 are for research use only and not approved for human or animal use, nor for in vitro diagnostic testing.
