Ethically sourced and fully traceable human primary smooth muscle cells. Functional and biochemical characterization. For studying metabolic disease: obesity, atherosclerosis, diabetes type II, NAFLD.

Human Primary Muscle Cells: Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells (HAoSMC)

Product Description

  • HAoSMC are isolated from disease human aorta.
  • Human tissues and body fluids are sourced via CellMade’s own tissue acquisition network under standardized conditions (temperature, transport medium, transport, delay, …). CellMade manages its own biobank and guarantees full compliance and traceability according to the laws of France.


Product Testing and Functional characterization

  • Standard: HAoSMC, are tested for expression of smooth muscle cell marker α-Actin by immunofluorescence staining methods.
  • Functionally characterized: HAoSMC are tested for reactivity after cellular stimuli: TNF-α for activation of PGE-2 secretion, measured in time-response/dose-response manner via ELISA methods.
  • CellMade primary cell models test negative for TVO, Moulds, Yeasts and Mycoplasmas as tested by PCR methods;
  • CellMade primary cell models test negative for HIV-1, HIV-2, HEP-B and HEP-C as tested by PCR methods and Antibody-methods;
  • CellMade primary cell models are accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis.


Biochemical characterization

  • CellMade has established rigorous biochemical quality control programs ensuring the qualification of normal and disease primary cell models; 


Cells can be expanded for up to five 5 passages under the cell culture conditions specified by CellMade.
