Primary Human Pulmonary Artery Endothelial Cells (HPAEC) are isolated from human pulmonary arteries (the main pulmonary artery, left and right branches). Since the pulmonary arteries carry blood from the heart to the lungs, they are the only arteries (other than umbilical arteries) that carry deoxygenated blood.
NEW: Our HPAEC are now also available from HLA-typed donors.
- Cryopreserved: Cryogenic vial containing 500.000 viable cells.
- Proliferating: >500.000 viable cells shipped in growth medium (T25 flask).
- Cell pellet: 1 million cells dissolved in 200µl RNAlater© for subsequent RNA, DNA or protein analysis. Cell pellets cannot be revived.
